What is compact shelving?

While our new shelving setup won't be exactly like the ones in these videos, the clips below will give  you a good idea of the kind of shelving that will be housing our collection in its new home downstairs.

As you can see, compact shelving will allow us to make sure that the space between shelves will always be exactly where we need it and never wasted where it's not. The print collection will require a much smaller building "footprint" to house the same number of books and periodicals.
