School Library Storage Systems

Continuing the theme of library shelving systems, to further increase their amount of storage they hold, within the confines of their system that they have but without the added increase of building size. High density shelving for libraries means having even more books, with no additional space usage, or more to the point, without the additional costs of getting even more filing into their libraries. Lets look further into this topic.

There are software solutions to adapt, build or edit existing libraries of content using Library Database Software such as Microsoft Access 2010 (PC DVD)

School Library Storage Systems

In order to help children learn as much as they can, students need to have the right tools available. But when the tools aren’t well organised, it doesn’t matter what storage solution the school has bought to hold their resources – the students may never be able to access them. School libraries have an especially difficult task with all of the books children need to read these days in school. But with library organisation of items using mobile shelving, schools can become more organised and thus help the students learn more about subjects they are studying today and the ones they will study in the future.

Start a New Collection Right

With mobile shelving an existing library system, or within a newer school, can setup a strong library system for their students. A completely freestanding mobile shelving system requires no drilling; no fixing down; no messy ground, or civil works; Mobile shelving will not damage or disturb your current space, carpet, or floor covering.

Update an Older Library

By taking the time to use library organiser software with an older library collection, you will be able to see what books you have on hand and which ones might be missing from the collection. In this way, you can easily update the collection to make it suitable for the classes who are in session today. This cataloging system can also be updated at any time, helping you to continue to keep the best books on hand and to add award winning books to the library shelves. Older libraries that may not have a catalogue system will benefit the most from this software as they will finally be able to have an electronic record of their inventory.

Libraries which may not have a lot of funding can also use library organiser software to help prospective donors know what to buy in order to fill the shelves up for students. You can create a spreadsheet of the needed books and then share this file with anyone you think might want to go out to the bookstore and help a school help their students.

No matter what you use the library organiser software for, it’s no surprise that schools benefit the most. And when schools benefit, this means the students and the teachers will too. Reading is where learning can begin – and even though computers are becoming a larger part of the curriculum, books are far from being absent from classrooms.

Library Shelving

Recently, the University of Texas announced they are “the nation’s first completely bookless library on a college or university campus”, from a press release: Bookless Library.

Library Shelving Book Storage

While librarians in the UK may question if they have the means, or resources to pull off such a feat, it begs the question: Are libraries relevant in this media age of digital books, & publications. Indeed, while there may be fewer books in a digital library, the library itself is still a shared resource for studying, & social activities between people. In a digital library, there may be numerous copies [my emphasis] of a book being used simultaneously; rendering moot the issue of lending periods, & the dreaded late return fee.

While some libraries may embrace this digital future, there must still be a place for traditional library shelving of real books: Books of value; historical, or of precious nature. The same holds for museums that need storage capacity, or shelving for the many artifacts stored within these great institutions. For a library, with dwindling resources, specifically storage area & capacity, their is a greater need for storage systems to meet their increasing need for more shelves within less space. Also of note is the issue of having an electronic library catalogue of all items available with the use of Library Database Software

Mobile Shelving storage for libraries meets that demand head on, with easy to use high density storage systems: Roller racking, & mobile shelving, makes use of available library space, and frees such areas to create an atmosphere of inclusion where more people can gather & socialise together. With the additional floor space savings a single moving aisle can bring, librarians can be more efficient to reach all the shelving quickly, & easily.

JJ Storage has introduced a new brochure of mobile shelving systems that can be modified, or even custom built for a bespoke storage solution for libraries that can accommodate their needs, as well as using these custom built storage shelves for small parts storage, Book Libraries, archival & museum storage, or medical records. The ways in which the space saving attributes of roller racking & mobile shelving can be used, is innumerable.
