Macquarie University Library - Australia’s first Automated Retrieval Collection system for books from Dematic Pty Ltd

Keywords: Inventory Tracking, Picking Systems, Automated Storage and Retrieval,

The most advanced library in Australia was recently opened at Macquarie University in Sydney. The $97 million project incorporates a host of architectural and technology initiatives, including Australia’s first Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) for handling books. The appropriately named ARC (Automated Retrieval Collection) has the capacity to store up to 1.8 million books in less than a seventh of the floorspace required by conventional shelving. The library can also provide hands-on access to up to 500,000 items that are in higher demand. This capacity to store up to 2.3 million titles enables the University to house its entire collection – previously split between sites – for the first time. And with its current inventory of 1.3 million books in the ARC, and 400,000 on shelving, the library is well placed to cope with title growth for many years to come.
