Placing Manuscript and Archival Collections into an Automated Storage and Retrieval System at the University of Nevada, Reno
Sundstrand, Jacquelyn K.
Journal of Archival Organization, v6 n1-2 p71-80 2008
Academic libraries are turning to automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) as a long-term cost effective means of gaining additional space in their open stacks areas by removing lesser used books and other materials for storage and placement into ASRS bins. The new library building under construction at the University of Nevada-Reno will have an ASRS facility. Unlike other libraries, however, UNR's Special Collections Department will place its manuscript and archives collections into the ASRS, without regard to frequency of use. This article highlights the staff's decisions and considerations reached during planning this project. (Contains 4 notes.)
