Most of August has been preparing for the installation of a new
fire suppression system in the Education Collections Storage
room. The new system is a standard VESDA pre-action system
that received funding from the 2007 Better Denver Campaign.
As part of this project, we had some blue insulating foam that
apparently could off-gas nasty stuff if it were to burn - so, the
Fire Marshall wanted it removed and replaced. In order to do
this, we had to move most of our collection out of our main storage
area since the Steel Fixture Gl Cases were backed up onto the
foam. In these pictures, the foam has been removed, but you
can see it in the opening slide show on the Education Collections
main page. In the coming weeks, I will be posting a
time-lapse we did of the move, it should be fun to watch.
Some of you had contacted us with requests from the
collection. This is why we have been unable to accommodate
those at this time. We should be back and up and operating by
the middle of September. Thank you for your patience.
