First official collection to special collections Remote Storage

First official collection shifted to Remote Storage

Several years ago, we acquired a new remote storage facility for the library. It took a while to get it revved up, but for the last year or so the rest of the library has been sending over their materials that need long term storage, but are unlikely to be used. The Special Collections section has taken a bit longer, and while we’re not at 100%, we are ready to start moving some of our little used materials offsite. We’ve had the McCormack Collection over there as long as we’ve had the facility, but it’s never been here in this building. Two weeks ago we began the process of folding the Heritage Collection into place.

But this morning we started with collection number 1000.002 John G. Gammie, The Sage in Israel and the Ancient Near East papers, 1990.
