The Remote Storage Facility shares the 16,000 square foot off-campus facility with Records Management Services.

Information about the storage facility

The warehouse part of the building has a 37 foot ceiling and currently holds over 600,000 items. The items include books and journals, filmstrips, theses, dissertations, and phonorecords. There is enough space in the Storage facility to hold up to 750,000 volumes. The facility stores items belonging to Newman, the other on-campus branches, and Special Collections.

Document deliver personnel process requests and prepare items for delivery Monday through Friday. Requests require a 48 hour processing time to be delivered to on-campus locations. Occasionally requests may take up to 5 business days to process due to request volume or citation problems.

Storage Facility information

Books at Storage are not arranged in call number order, but are shelved according to size. The books are put into boxes according to their size, then assigned a box and depth number. Each book will have its own barcode number, shelf number, box number, and depth number. These unique numbers indicate the location of the item.

Library courier service and storage

Library Courier Service is a resource that transports library materials to and from Newman Library, the Storage facility, the Art + Architecture Library, and the Veterinary Medicine Library. All patrons should use ILLiad to request items from the NVC Resource Center in northern Virginia.

The Library Courier delivers library materials Monday through Friday and all deliveries are completed by 5:00 pm each day. The delivery schedule varies during breaks and summer. For more information about this service, visit the Library Courier Service page.
