For most libraries, constructing and stocking a new facility is a rarity.  DCU Library has now ticked this monumental milestone of stocking it’s third library; Woodlock Hall based in All Hallows campus.

Moving a large library collection to a new facility is a huge endeavour. To complete such a task, three components were critical to its success: planning, coordination and working with the right people. In a collection move, details matter so well thought-out planning and coordination proved essential to anticipate the many challenges and to ensure timelines were met. Working with an experienced and dedicated shelving team meant an incredible amount of work was accomplished and to an exemplary standard of order. 

The journey from a room filled with 982 boxes to a fully stocked three-floored library, consisting of 18,435 titles took a team of 8 people a total of 13 days/65 hours to complete, ultimately filling 573 shelves of the new library. What makes this achievement so remarkable is the addition of learning new classification sequences not seen in O’Reilly and Cregan Libraries.
