As libraries strive to maintain collections with limited space, many have turned to high-efficiency, off-site shelving facilities. This work addresses virtually all major issues in planning, building, and operating high-density storage. Using the Harvard Depository model, but applying the issues and activities to other models as well, a host of contributors cover such issues as governance and cost, design and construction, preservation, selection, pre-shelving preparation, systems, access and management, services, and transportation. An essential guide to anyone considering or involved in high efficiency shelving, this book is also a valuable reference.

"The editors take a dynamic approach to this, underlining that it is not a passive matter of warehousing or storage....All the chapters are written from experience and there is therefore much practical advice in them, with some offering case studies outlining different approaches....A key theme throughout is the determination to provide an efficient and effectie service so as not to inconvenience users unduly....The book offers much such considered advice and will be of interest to anyone contemplating building, or new to managing, such a facility."-Library Management "This is an excellent resource for anyone seeking detailed information about the high-density storage model. It does not attempt to compare the Harvard model with other storage systems nor does it include an assessment of the impact on users of having materials in storage. However, it provides case studies and tachnical specifications that fill a gap in the literature. I highly recommend this work for anyone confronting space shortages"-The Journal of Academic Librarianship ?This is an excellent resource for anyone seeking detailed information about the high-density storage model.
