There is reseach that suggests that closed stacks reduce vandalism and theft.
Aside from access issues, I would prefer a closed stacks system.
Also, when thinking of the costs of student time for retrival, you must also
consider how much it costs to order,repair, rebind, or replace damaged volumes,
including the cost of full time staff involved in this process.
