We are in the process of completing a move back to a renovated
building. We moved out of the building into the the new addition last
March. We used a moving company called Library Relocation Consulants.
They did an excellant job for us. They used student labor for their
part of the move. They only moved the collection. We moved the
offices and people ourselves. We are going to make this next move
with students we hire. We have built our own carts to make this next
move.  I would be happy to discuss the move in more detail at your

We at Kansas State Universities have made one major move in recent years and
have also used a commercial firm to move a large gift collection from N.Y.C.
To move about 450,000 volumes to storage we used a local moving company with
good results.  They assigned a foreman to the move and we trained him in moving
books.  He hired KSU students as workers and we shared training responsibili-
ties.  The move was quite successful.  If you need details, contact me
and I will put you in contact with the librarian in charge of that move.
  We used the National Library Relocation Co., headquartered on Long Island, to
move a large gift from New York City to Manhattan, Ks., and they were also
very good.  They specialize in moving books and museums, and work all over the
country.  Scott Miller is the contact person  at 1-800-486-6837.
