I would not be so quick to dismiss the option of recording the storage
facility location in NOTIS.  While you anticipate moving to a new system,
presumably all cataloging, circulation, etc., data will migrate to the new
system for the storage location just as it should for other locations.  My
experience with standalone systems is that sooner or later you end up
incorporating them into the main system -- so why do the work twice?
