Following on from a task highlighted at the last AGM, Arlis/ANZ Journals have been scanned so they will be available in digital format. NSW Chapter chose the free online platform Issuu. As you can imagine it is a labour intensive process. So far two issues of the Arlis/Anz journal have been uploaded; they are on preview with a basic setup for free publishing. The images of the artworks have been blocked to prevent copyright issues.

Here is a link to one of the journals:

https://issuu.com/arlisanz/docs/no.65__2008_original.pdf_colour_300

If the journal is not showing up, please do a title search (ARLIS/ANZ Journal) and they should appear on the screen.

Thanks to Vivian Huang for her assistance with this task.

Once all the journals are up we will be looking into a way of embedding links into the Arlis/ANZ website.

It’s great to see so many of you signing up to attend the upcoming ARLIS/ANZ conference.

A couple of reminders:

The magnificent O Bar is a revolving bar, on the 47th Floor of Australia Square. Panoramic views of the city of Sydney at sunset will be on offer!

click on register, put in your details and choose a ticket for Welcome drinks @ O Bar.

And a reminder to note your name on bank transfer payments for either membership or the conference. One of our tasks is to marry bank payments to conference registrations- so having a name attached to the transfer makes it that much easier.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the conference.

Compactus shelf dividers

Following on from my post about the compactus units I thought I would also note that the Art Gallery of NSW library has a number of new boxes of compactus shelf dividers for those that might need them. See accompanying photograph.

 

Steven Miller

Compactuses available at a very reasonable price

The National Music Library at 1 Oxford Street are moving premises. They have some old compactuses (still in good working order) that are available for purchases at very good prices. Here are the details:

 

“Matthew”

6 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

2 bays per face @ 900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 6600mm (L) x 1950mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 126 lineal metres (all bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,000

“Mark”

7 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

3 bays per face @ 900/900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 7500mm (L) x 2800mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 221.4 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,770

“Luke”

7 double-faced mobile units

4 bays per face @ 900/750/750/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 6700mm (L) x 3500mm (W) x 2000 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900/750mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 184.8 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 4 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,480

“John”

8 double-faced mobile units

4 bays per face @ 900/750/750/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 7300mm (L) x 3500mm (W) x 2000 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900/750mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 219 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (330mm high))

Price = $1,750

“Simon”

3 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

3 bays per face @ 900/900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 3800mm (L) x 2800mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 350mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 92.7 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 4 storage levels (510mm high))

Price = $740

Luke and John can be joined together to form one very long compactus. The prices are negotiable – we would definitely consider reducing them even further. All compactuses need to be dismantled, transported and reassembled at your own cost. All compactuses require false flooring with tracks – the current false flooring and tracks are in poor condition but may be taken together with the compactuses if desired.

The compactuses should be empty and available in the last week of September (26 to 30 September). After 30 September, there will no longer be access to our current offices and the compactuses will be removed and discarded by the building owners when they “make good” the space.
