Compact storage

From: Linda Catano <lcatano>
Date: Tuesday, August 29, 2006
At the RISD Museum we are finalizing a design for a storage room for
our prints and drawings collection in a new building.  We are
considering electronically controlled compact storage units with
battery powered back-up because the most efficient design for the
space calls for especially long carriages.  We would appreciate
hearing from anyone with experience using electronic compact units,
especially more recently constructed ones, as we've been hearing
that reliability has greatly improved over the years. Any advice
would be greatly appreciated,
