Off-site storage moved

Yesterday ANLA moved its off-site storage to a new home two floors down in the Rasmuson Library. While moving is never fun, the new location in the periodicals annex has better lighting and climate control. This area stores (among other things):
  • newly accessioned collections which have not yet been cataloged
  • materials which have already been digitized
  • cassette tapes awaiting digitization
  • large collections outside our main collection scope
