Libraries used to be all about books, stacks as far as the eye could see. But times are changing – to keep up with a diverse array of multimedia services and other administrative needs, libraries have had to expand their purview to reach modern audiences.
Kansas State University understood this evolution well. While its on-campus libraries provide students and faculty a quiet place to conduct research, they must also serve a dual purpose as an open space for the college community. To free up some room in their libraries, KSU teamed up with Montel to transform a printing facility into a state-of-the-art book depository with the help of high-density storage solutions.

Cumbersome prefabricated racking options can cause shelving vacancies and render whole sections of a facility useless to its owner.

A company’s HR department handles all things involving its human capital: how employees interact with each other, with the company and the knowledge they gain therein. With this broad job description comes a level of responsibility unlike any other position in-house.
Human resources storage can keep this department moving diligently to service everyone from entry-level interns to corporate stakeholders. Who knew the greatest asset to human resources might not be human at all?
