About half of our US documents collection is housed in our off-site Repository; as with all UGA Libraries materials housed off-site, these items are generally retrieved within 24 hours. Another 25% or so of the collection is housed in closed stacks in our Main Library and paged on demand by Map and Government Information Library staff during our open hours. The remaining 25% of the collection is housed in open stacks in either the Map and Government Information Library or the Science Library.  A small number of historical documents, including Serial Set volumes through the 60th Congress, are housed in our Special Collections Libraries building; these are also paged on demand during that building's open hours.


My staff is responsible for stacks maintenance of our documents collection in all locations except the Special Collections Libraries building. It should be noted that we chose not to house microformats, electronic documents (CDs, etc) or maps off site due to the logistics of filing and retrieving non-book items.


Having moved entire government documents collection as well as our map collection in and out of various buildings within the past 2 years, my best advice is start planning ASAP and get a good tape measure - a good portion of our move planning involved counting and measuring.

Bill and All,

 

We have not yet started sending depository materials to storage, but are planning to do so.  We probably will start before the year is over.  Our facility is not shared.

 

I would be thrilled to see an ASERL webinar on this topic.

 

Best,

Kathryn Wesley

Folks,

 

I’m curious how many folks are currently sending depository materials to a storage facility.  I’m also curious if your materials are going into a shared facility, ie shared with another institution.

 

Reply to the list if you want to share and me – sudduthw [at] mailbox.sc.edu if you just want my eyes to see your message.

 

Last question – how many of you would be interested in an ASERL webinar on the issues?

 

Thanks
