Increasing Storage Capacity in Less Space
A community college was running out of library space for its collection. The library needed a new storage solution that would increase their capacity in less space. A compact mobile storage system was the perfect solution to meet the library’s needs.
Problems the Library Faced with Storage
Previously, the library stored books, reference materials, magazines, and microfilm in outdated static shelves and in cabinets, which ate up floor space all over the library and left very little room for students to meet and study. Expanding the building or moving weren’t options because of budget constraints. Click here to learn more about high density mobile shelving.
Why The Library Chose a Compact Mobile Storage System
The library decided to look for a different type of storage. That’s when they found compact mobile storage. The ability to store their collection in less space while offering users easy access was the deciding factor for the library.
Because the compact mobile storage system eliminates access aisles, it’s able to fit into a smaller footprint than traditional static shelving. And because the mobile system operates with a simple push of a button, it’s easy for a user to create an aisle to access stored books or journals.
Additionally, the library was also able to use some of their existing shelving and microfilm cabinets within the compact mobile storage system, eliminating the need to re-purchase those items. Custom, cherry wood end panels add a sophisticated look and feel to match the interior aesthetic of the library.
