Give Hugh his due. Once again, artisan/craftsman Hugh Brown has done work that demonstrates thinking outside the box.
Special Collections is removing everything from the Rare workroom. This move meant demolishing a perfectly good shelving unit because it was too large to get out of the space. Hugh Brown to the rescue. He executed a deft move and sawed the unit in half-carried it down to Preservation on a dolly, and re-assembled it. There is now a very large unit with a laminate work surface and multiple shelves for storing flat materials in Preservation. This will allow me to store materials that I’ve keep for years on the floor and store them in a clean, easy to reach location. Thank you Hugh!
