Room to Grow: Duke Libraries Open Second Module at Off-Campus Facility

Shelving the first books at the new Library Service Center module.
The Duke University Libraries have just opened a second module at the Library Service Center, the Libraries' state-of-the-art book repository on Anson Street in Durham. The new module, which holds 2.5-million-volumes, relieves pressure on the first module, which has reached its 2.5-million volume capacity. At both modules items are organized by size and shelved in trays to maximize space. A barcoding system ensures inventory location controls, which facilitates faster retrieval of items for patrons.  Materials at the Library Service Center are maintained in an optimal environment of 50 degrees Fahrenheit and 30 per cent relative humidity.
