Yale University Library Storage Facility

Hamden CT

The Yale Library Storage Facility is the University's archival storage and retrieval facility for both books and artifacts. The processing area and storage module designed by RSS&C has become the standard first phase closely replicated by institutions around the country. Yale and our consultant team determined that six aisle storage modules provided 150% greater capacity at only 120% greater cost than four aisle modules for institutions that accession about 500,000 volumes per year. Twenty-aisles of storage were added in five modules over two phases.
