Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to determine whether an automated storage facility met the need to manage space, given a growing collection and the study area needs of users.
Design/methodology/approach – This paper describes the automated storage and retrieval installation, storage projects since the first load, and daily use.
Findings – Using an automated storage and retrieval system has allowed efficient space handling in Lied Library, while offering quick access to stored materials.
Originality/value – In recent years automated storage and retrieval systems have become viable options for the onsite storage of library materials. Those planning new library facilities or remodelling existing facilities will be informed of the practical experience in using such a system for five years.
