We have compact shelving but it is not in a public area. It is on the
ground floor of one of our dormitory buildings and is used to shelve
little used periodicals and very old theses copies. Ours also are hand
cranking. They are sturdy because they are on a ground floor.

I've read a lot of positive replies. We just opened two days ago with
public compact shelving. Ours is very wobbly and the students are very
interested in squishing each other. We have no frills-just handles that
we turn. I'd be pleased to read a little more about the experiences
others have had. Our supplier said that he installed shelving in
Burlington and that is shaky also.

Subject: Compact Shelving for Serials
Has anyone had any experience with using compact shelving for serials
accessable to the public? Because of space problems, we are contemplating
using these for storing our back issues of periodicals .
I would like to hear the pros and cons from others who have tried this
type of shelving.
Thanks in advance,
