What are the benefits of compact storage units?
  • Compact storage saves space and can help to
    preserve the life of documents.
  • Superior alternative to stacking books, articles,
    and documents on the floor or tops of book
    shelves.

12

So how does compact shelving work?

  • Compact storage shelving can be controlled and
    moved just by pressing a button or on other units
    by turning a crank.

13
Compact storage gives up to 50 more floor space

14
Compact Storage gives WIU the opportunity to
Recreate and Revitalize the Malpass Library and
Transform WIU Libraries
15
We want to
  • Exploit the educational mission of the library
  • Create an Information Commons
  • Improve Library Efficiency
  • Increase technology innovation to provide the
    delivery of information anytime and anywhere
  • Hire, train and retain tech savvy staff

16
  • Our Vision
  • WIU Libraries serves as a portal to the
    information landscape (physical and virtual)
  • Our Slogan
  • WIU Libraries The Learning Space

17
Our Goal
  • Inspire and educate Faculty and Students to use
    the library through innovative services and
    redesigned facilities.
