Wake Forest University was using an off-site storage company to house their library overflow material. This company not only charged by the linear foot to store the books, but there was also a cost associated with each time a book needed to be retrieved from the facility and brought back to the library. The university knew that they wanted to continue to open up space within the library, meaning more material would need to go off-site, and making their current solution unsustainable.
The university purchased a warehouse with 50' high ceilings and XTend® Mobile High-Bay allowed them the ability to maximize capacity (both the height of the library shelving and the elimination of aisles contributed to this) and they were also able to consolidate costs by bringing the material back to the university.
