OUT OF SPACE AND CONTINUING TO GROW
A museum doesn’t have the luxury of storing its collections any-old-way; Historical collections need to be preserved and cared for. So what does a museum do when there’s not enough floorspace to protect their current collections? What if they want to grow? Glenbow Museum Library and Archive had exactly that challenge.
How did we make a difference?
HBI worked with Glenbow museum to create a custom-configured mobile shelving system. Each row was designed to hold exactly the media it was storing without compromising on adaptability. This was accomplished with easy-to-reconfigure archive shelving and labelled drawers. The system increased capacity significantly and made accessing the collection safer for staff. Glenbow Museum was very satisfied with their design and has worked with HBI on several more mobile shelving systems since then.
