Library Stacks Shift as 200,000 Items Go to Storage

Project Overview

The Stack Tower Project will send 20,000 linear feet of materials – some 200,000 items – to on-campus and off-campus storage. This will reduce six floors of collections to five, freeing up level 9 for immediate and future use by the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL). Book movers will shift the entire stack tower collection to fill the newly vacated space, and the locations of call numbers will change.

Progress Update:

On August 10th Stack Tower collections begain moving to storage.  Movers have tagged books and moved them to the ends of each row of shelves on all floors.  The movers are gathering these items and placing them in wheeled boxes for moving to the Storage Library. Read more.
