SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY HIGH DENSITY LIBRARY STORAGE
20,000 Square Foot Facility | Syracuse, NY
VIP Architectural Associates
VIP Structures was enlisted to design and build a 20,000 SF facility just 3 miles from Syracuse University’s main campus. The cutting-edge design is able to house the equivalent (in conventional library shelving terms) of 165,000 to 200,000 linear book feet by shelving items by size. Depending on the actual characteristics of the collections, the temperature and humidity-controlled archival storage vault can hold over one million books, maps, and multimedia materials.
This high-tech expandable building features the most modern technology for storing and retrieving enormous quantities of books in an economical and efficient manner, while at the same time providing a physically secure and optimum preservation environment for permanent and important parts of Syracuse University’s library collections.
