In June 2000, Columbia University, Princeton University and The New York Public Library signed a partnership agreement to jointly construct and operate a remote high-density book shelving facility. The newly formed partnership is officially entitled The Research Collections and Preservation (ReCAP) Consortium, Inc.
These major research libraries agreed to store their low use items at ReCAP. You are invited to browse the website.
 
**First we will begin with the history, take a walking tour of the facility with an explanation of our process and then finish with questions and answers.

You do not need to be a chapter member to attend but we request that you advise us if you plan to come.  Neighboring chapter members may also find this program valuable.

NOTE: We have been asked for a head count so please confirm with one of the following no later than November  5th.
