Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for Off-Site Storage (MARCOSS)
April 10, 2018
McKeldin Library, University of Maryland Libraries, College Park, MD

The University of Maryland College Park Libraries was pleased to host MARCOSS (Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for Off-Site Storage), a one-day conference for those who work in or with library off-site storage facilities in the mid-Atlantic region. This conference took place at the McKeldin Library at the University of Maryland College Park. 

Traditional library concerns like access, preservation, systems, and collections are different in off-site storage than at the circulating libraries they support. MARCOSS gave participants the opportunity to develop a network among off-site storage library professionals in the mid-Atlantic region and learn about the work their colleagues do at their off-site storage facilities. Topics that the sessions addressed included:


•    Collections
•    Error reduction/lost items
•    Preservation
•    Shelving methods
•    Space/planning
•    Special collections/university archives
•    Systems

You can view the presentaions deposited by the presenters in DRUM (Digital Repository at the University of Maryland) following the conference.
