Minnesota Library Access Center (MLAC) is our high density storage facility for
Minnesota academic, public and governmental libraries.
The Minnesota Library Access Center (MLAC) – which has provided high density storage for
important, but little used items owned by Minnesota libraries since 2000 – is 89% full. In
Fall 2010, MLAC's Advisory Board charged an Evaluation Task Force led by consultant Sam Demas with
preparing a report to guide the Board's exploration of strategic directions for the future of MLAC.
This report explicates the current status and
environment of library storage facilities nationwide, describes current trends relevant to these
facilities, and lists three possible scenarios for the MLAC.
