Moving collection materials

From: Robert Pearce <robert.pearce<-a>

We are preparing to move from our present location in 2006 to the
University of Nottingham's newest campus--King's Meadow.  In the new
venue our Reading Room will be some distance from the Mss Store and
our porters will have to wheel trolleys (containing manuscripts and
printed books) through public space between Store and Reading Room.
Does anyone have any advice about appropriate trolleys and/or
suppliers? Ideally we are looking for something that is enclosed,
maybe lockable, and big enough to deal with the wide range of
shapes, sizes and weight that make up the contents of our holdings.
