Compact shelving

In the fall of 2005, the compact shelving that houses the government documents and locked compact materials was added to McCabe in an effort to increase shelving capacity. In case you are one of the lucky few who haven't yet had to tangle with the compact shelving, they're the big, gray, moving shelves on the lower level of the library (not moving of their own accord in a cool Hogwarts type way, but more in the sense that they have the capability of moving through your own manual labor).

For those of us who may sometimes feel like the space between the shelves is closing in on us [or could], rest assured that you aren't in any actual danger of being squashed like a bug by the hundreds of documents you're rooting through, it's just a bout of claustrophobia.
