The University of Kansas Libraries
The Library Annex
The Library Annex is a high-density storage facility for low-use library materials. The transfer of such materials to the Library Annex increases the space available for users in the main campus library buildings and provides conservation-level environmental controls for books and journals, archives and manuscripts, and rare and fragile materials. All materials in the Library Annex are represented in the Library catalog and may be requested for use. The Library Annex is located on KU’s west campus and designed on the Harvard model. It will have an initial capacity of 1.6 million volumes.
