ARES Secure Roller Shutters
The Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford today unveiled its new £26-million Book Storage Facility (BSF), capable of holding 8.4 million volumes on 153 miles of shelving.
The new book warehouse, in South Marston, near Swindon, will store lower-usage items from the Libraries’ collections that had overwhelmed the existing bookstacks and required additional temporary storage in various locations in and outside Oxford. These collections will now be brought together at the BSF, including books, maps, manuscripts, microfilms, periodicals and newspapers primarily from the 18th century onwards.
