Mobile Storage Cabinets Increase Storage Capacity for Records, Artifacts, and Textiles
The museum purchased five Mobile Storage Cabinets systems to store records, artifacts, and textiles. The total cost of all five Mobile Storage Cabinet systems was only 20% of the original estimate to build new storage space. In addition, the museum was able to store all their records, artifacts, and textiles in their existing space with 25% storage expansion to meet future growth needs.
