Abstract

The Penn State Annex has played a vital role in the growth and development of library collections and programs. This article reflects on a number of initiatives in which the off-site storage facility has played a part, including shrink wrapping current journal issues, space management during phased construction, a facilities crisis, and a barcoding project that uses wireless technology. Changes in staffing requirements in anticipation of a new high-density facility are discussed.
