SHENZHEN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY LIBRARY
The Shenzhen Science and Technology library is the first library with dual functions; public library and academic library. The library is shared by graduate schools from four universities: Peking University, Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Nankai University, and open to the local residents. Its mission “All for the people, for all the people” aims to serve the local students and faculty members, corporate researchers and Shenzhen residents.
About 10 years ago the Shenzhen Science and Technology Library designed their room with static library shelving. However, due to the growing collection along the years, there was a lack of storage capacity. Therefore they decided to increase their book storage by optimizing their space and maximizing their storage capacity. The storage system also needed to be of high quality to minimize issues and to have a long product lifetime.
Bruynzeel Storage Systems designed storage solutions for Shenzhen Science and Technology Library where their static library shelving were replaced by mobile library shelving. Two Compactus® Dynamic II XTR were installed with over 11 km of shelving! This way they doubled their storage capacity and are able to store their growing collection of books.
