Plan Files for poster storage

From: Maria Fredericks <mf360>
Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2004
I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with
the Ulrich PlanFile system for vertical storage of maps and/or
posters.  These have been proposed to us by a vendor as a
higher-density alternative to conventional flat map cases.  I've
spoken to a librarian who has used them for years in public-access
map collections, but I would also like to talk with someone who may
have investigated or used them for special collections materials (In
our case these are WWI, WWII and TASS posters).  I would especially
like more information about the pressure exerted on the materials by
the spring/clamp system, and the amount of manipulation it seems to
require to remove an item from the storage unit.  Thanks very much.
