Farewell, VHS shelves!
There is a time and a place for everything. Unfortunately, the bell has tolled for our old VHS shelves. As we continue to expand our DVD collection, we needed to install more practical and compact shelving, and our rolling VHS unit had to go. Our VHSes are still sticking around, but in the meantime, we had to clear everything off and, with the help of AU's wonderful facilities team, demolish what was left.
These shelves have been a mainstay of our department since the 1980s, so it's sad to see them go. On the bright side, dismantling them helped us find two long-missing DVDs!
We documented the takedown in excessive detail, so we've uploaded our photo gallery to Facebook. Check out our page to see all 50+ photos which get progressively nastier-looking as more layers are taken off the floor.
