Re: Compact shelving redhead 30 Oct 2003 13:17 UTC


Kansas State University Libraries has installed Space Saver compact shelving
in 3 areas over the past 5 years (one section this past summer). We have both
manual and electrical.

I have no details about the situation, but Char Simser (
would either know details or could give you the name of someone who worked
more directly with the project.
