I understand fully. We had no more walls to knock out for our growing
collection, so grant funds had to be invested in Spacesaver shelves.
They are on tracks and have handles that turn which slide the doors back
and forth. Yes, they were quite expensive, but it was necessary for
collection growth. If you're interested in something like this the
number is 800-492-3434.

I notice that many are saying closed stacks. This does cut down on
theft. However, space is sometimes at a premium. How does everyone
with growing collections and finite space? I have been weeding, but
with the most liberal of conditions for weeding, little is taken out of
