Circulating your collection starts with the right storage
Library collections are constantly growing, yet library budgets remain tight and available space is even tighter. We can hardly blame librarians for wishing the magic covered in 793.8 of the Dewey decimal system told them how to pull more storage out of a hat.
Be booksmart when it comes to storage, here are some ideas:
- High-Density Mobile Shelving frees up space for other library uses and activities
- Smart Lockers can be used for temporary storage and contactless exchange of books, IT equipment and more
- High-Bay Shelving takes your off-site storage capacity to new heights
- Easily adjust shelves to fit your collection with Cantilever Library Shelving
The right library storage solution can help librarians make the most of their existing funds and cramped building. Whether it is media storage, periodicals, catalogs, music, archival materials or books, books and more books, libraries have a lot of stuff to store.
A cluttered library space is confusing and complicated. And the push to repurpose the library for collaborative space, coffee shops and the like creates even more pressure. Patrons and researchers can’t get what they need. Library staff struggles to keep up with crammed shelves and the depths of dusty storage rooms. Static bookshelves aren’t the only answer.
You don’t need a magic wand to make the most of library storage. Create a space that streamlines workflow and makes access to collection materials efficient. By maximizing space on-site with high-density mobile shelving or going vertical off-site with high-bay shelving, you can also regain valuable building footprint. Create labs and collaborative learning spaces or the comfortable lounges that bring people in the door to experience the essential wonders of your library.
