The East Baton Rouge Library serves the entire parish of East Baton Rouge. With over 250,000 library cardholders and a 14-branch system, space is at a premium. And with renovation projects in the planning stages, space becomes even a bigger issue. The East Baton Rouge Library needed additional space for the books and materials during renovation. This is how SSI SCHAEFER enabled a storage solution to help with future space constraints.
East Baton Rouge Library, Baton Rouge, LA
The East Baton Rouge Library contacted ScottTech, who is part of the SSI SCHAEFER dealer network. ScottTech learned that space was an on-going problem for renovations. Temporary storage offsite wasn’t an option due to the nature of some of the collections and archive material. The SSI LOGIMAT® was presented as an option and was a perfect solution for East Baton Rouge Library.
Getting an Education in Library Storage Options
To meet these challenges, the SSI LOGIMAT® was installed with technology that enables users to quickly find a specific item. The SSI LOGIMAT consists of a walled cabinet that keeps dust and debris away from components, which is perfect for libraries that have special collections and historical references. Within the cabinet, there are shelving trays with an elevator type of lift that brings specific trays to certain users. Storage height can vary depending on the items stored, which makes the SSI LOGIMAT a versatile solution for both small and larger items.
Preservation for Generations to Come
With SSI SCHAEFER, technology is at the forefront of everything we do. And with libraries and education facilities, sometimes special collections need both storage and security. Technology solutions from SSI SCHAEFER allow for special tray permissions, provides audit logs, and comes with options to ensure that the correct piece is picked and inventory is truly secure.
