J. Suthakorn, Sangyoon Lee, Yu Zhou, R. Thomas, S. Choudhury, G.S. Chirikjian
Proceedings 2002 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.02CH37292)  
An autonomous mobile robotic library system has been developed to retrieve items from bookshelves and carry them to scanning stations located in the off-site shelving facility.  ...  Consequently, many libraries have built or plan to build off-site shelving facilities to accommodate printed materials.  ...  In subsequent sections of this paper, we report the design, control systems, experiments and results of an autonomous robotic library system for an off-site shelving facility, the Moravia Park shelving  ...

Comprehensive access to printed materials (CAPM)

G. Sayeed Choudhury, Mark Lorie, Erin Fitzpatrick, Ben Hobbs, Greg Chirikjian, Allison Okamura, Nicholas E. Flores
2001 Proceedings of the first ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '01  
The CAPM Project features the development and evaluation of an automated, robotic on-demand scanning system for materials at remote locations.  ...  These extensions will results in a more fully automated CAPM system and a valuation framework that will not only be useful for assessing CAPM specifically, but also for library services and functions generally  ...  The CAPM Project began with the goal of restoring browsability through an automated, robotic system that would allow patrons to browse, in real-time, materials shelved at off-site facilities through a  ...

JURA: a collaborative solution to Hong Kong academic libraries storage challenge

Peter Sidorko, Linda Lee
2014 Library Management  
As shown in many other cases, the building of a new library or extension usually costs several times more than an off-site storage facility and this cost is severely exacerbated when the need is required  ...  JURA objectives, while well-defined in order to persuade the HUCOM management of the need for a central remote/off-site storage facility may not seem as pressing an issue at present to some JULAC member  ...

Off-Site Storage and Special Collections: A Study in Use and Impact in ARL Libraries in the United States

Charlotte Priddle, Laura McCann
2015 College and Research Libraries  
Off-site storage facilities, used frequently by research libraries for general circulating collections, offer a solution to these pressures.  ...  Using data from a survey of special collections directors from ARL member libraries, this article examines both the current use of off-site storage facilities and its impact on core special collections  ...  The two available case studies are informative reports and reflections on the use of a high-density off-site storage facility and an ASRS system for archival collections.  ...

Strategic Developments in Collection Storage of Libraries and Archives – Architectural, Technical, Political

Helen Shenton
2005 Liber Quarterly: The Journal of European Research Libraries  
The next step for automation would be for a robotic arm to take an individual book off a shelf, an idea being developed at Johns Hopkins University.  ...  The vision is for one robot to retrieve the volume in an off-site store, take it to a scanning station, where the volume is scanned with the pages turned automatically by another machine, for instantaneous  ...

The Weeding Planner--How a Research Library Weeded Approximately 2.76 Miles of Print Materials from the Shelves to Repurpose Library Space OR Much Ado About the New Normal

Cristina Caminita, Andrea Herbert
2016 Against the Grain  
The Libraries do not currently have off-site storage warehousing for low use materials, so print items, no matter how out of date or how low use, had remained on the shelves for years.  ...  Carolina State University promotes use of its robotic book delivery system, bookBot. 4 At a recent conference meeting, a collections management department head commented that she foresees print collections  ...

The imperative to manage print collections collaboratively

James MICHALKO,, James MICHALKO
2012 Journal of College and University Libraries  
For a reliable new system of print provision to emerge a network of supply repositories and committed consumer institutions must be established along with a business support infrastructure.  ...  Academic libraries should move to a shared collection model relying on supply services from remote storage facilities or other academic libraries that have declared a commitment to preserve print copies  ...  While libraries have been duplicating one another s collections they have also been putting more and more of their inventory into off-site storage repositories.  ...
