Aging map cases sat in a crowded storage area at the institution’s headquarters. Added space to accommodate box storage and extra map storage was wanted by staff. There was also a desire to improve the old map cabinets. So, museum personnel sought advice from a local storage expert.

There was a visit to the site and a discussion about establishment needs with internal teams leading up the formal recommendation. The consultant proposed using a specific line of museum map cabinet drawers, which fit on mobile carriage shelving designed to save space. System operation is easy. A push button controls carriage movement. Floor rails provide guidance as it moves to eliminate excess aisles and free up space for extra storage capacity.
