Why can't all our books be kept on campus?


Penn's Libraries are at capacity - for every new book we acquire, one book has to be removed from campus libraries. Before opening LIBRA, we kept approximately 1.6 million volumes of lesser-used research materials offsite in a leased High Density Storage Facility which opened in 1998, at 30th and Market St.
