Hate to tell you this, Barry, but NYU will be going to off-site storage for little used books, as soon as we can find a place that will accept them. Evidently we thought we could build the facility on Staten Island, but the neighbors raised up, clamoring "the garbage dump is bad enough, we will not tolerate books." Even Staten Island folk have their pride, it seems. Books will be fetched on 24 hour notice, according to the plan. But we will see how the plan works out, in practice.
