ASU Library’s High Density Collection: where books go to outlive you (The State Press)

The State Press: ASU Library’s High Density Collection: where books go to outlive you. “Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Arizona State University’s High Density Collection holds within its bunkers 1.6 million books. To call it a labyrinth, like the door factory in Monsters Inc. or a football field full of books, doesn’t completely capture this ice-cold collection facility. Rather, it’s as if the Room of Requirement in Harry Potter was made to hold 6 million books, meticulously sorted into fastidious shelves.”
