Q. Why did you put some books in storage?
Why didn't you keep everything out on the shelves in the open stacks?
Because, as of October 2016, 71% (297,379) of the library's print books were never checked out or used in-house. Only 2% (8,049) of the books on the shelf were checked out 5 or more times. Our Course Reserve materials have the highest use (410 items checked out 41,061 times) of any of our print materials.
