The most plausible solution is to install compact shelving: mobile, high-density shelving that effectively doubles that of conventional fixed shelving. It does this by putting shelves on tracks and collapsing the aisles. Moving a range of shelves may be done manually or electronically.
The total cost for this project will be approximately $450,000. In the first stage endowment funds will be combined with donor gifts to cover the expected cost of between $125,000-150,000. Shelving will be installed in the current processing area on the lower level.
