Making Space for Books: Mobile Shelving in the Archives (Exhibition)
Title: Making Space for Books: Mobile Shelving in the Archives
Curator: Sarah Kortemeier
Abstract: In 2019, the Poetry Center received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to install high-density mobile shelving in our Archives Room. The new shelving system created shelf space for the next 10-20 years of book purchasing, based on current acquisition rates, placing the Poetry Center in the strongest possible position to preserve our unique collections for the future. This exhibit presents photographs and details from the installation process in a behind-the-scenes look at the ongoing work of the Poetry Center Library. The Poetry Center thanks the University of Arizona Libraries and the National Endowment for the Humanities for support and partnerships that made this project possible. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this web exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Our Winter Closure: Making Space for Books (Blog Post)
Title: Our Winter Closure: Making Space for Books
Author: Sarah Kortemeier
Abstract: Our plans to create more space for books are about to become a reality. With grant support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, along with generous help from the University of Arizona Libraries, we will install a new shelving system in our Archives room this winter. The new shelving system, supplied by Phoenix-based firm Interior Solutions, will give us space to house the next 15-20 years of library acquisitions. To complete this major installation, we will close the library to the public in the break between the fall and spring semesters: the library will be closed to visitors from Dec. 17-Jan. 21.
