Off site storage project as Case Study

Iron Mountain recently featured the University of Scranton Weinberg Memorial Library off-site storage project as a Case Study on their website.

The project, completed during the summer of 2016, sent 10,172 books from the collection to the Iron Mountain facility in Rosendale, New York. The resulting video discusses the importance of extending ownership of the library collection and preserving the condition of the materials while still being able to make these materials accessible to students, faculty and staff. Books can be retrieved from off-site storage in one business day and requestors will get an email when the book is ready for pick-up at the Circulation Desk.

You may recognize some familiar faces speaking about the transparency of the process, touring the facility and demonstrating how easy it is to retrieve a book from off-site storage. Click here to check out the video.
