Assuring Sustainable Collection Growth with High-Density Mobile Storage

The purchase and installation of a high-density mobile storage system in the archives room of the University of Arizona Poetry Center (UAPC).

The University of Arizona Poetry Center (UAPC), one of the most extensive and accessible collections of contemporary poetry in the United States, will purchase and install a mechanical-assist high-density mobile storage system in the organization’s closed-stacks Archives Room. This project is the culmination of a major preservation initiative that began in 2014 with a Preservation Assessment funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions. Achieving the goals and recommendations of the assessment is a key priority of UAPC’s 2014–2019 Strategic Plan, which recognizes the library’s collections as a crucial part of UAPC’s identity; the completion of this project will mark the fulfillment of this key priority. The project increases sustainability at UAPC by providing space for 15 to 20 years of sustainable collection growth, placing UAPC in the strongest possible position to preserve its nationally significant humanities collections.
