    Macquarie University Library's decision to include an automated storage and retrieval system as part of its move to a new library building in 2011 has allowed the location onsite of all library holdings and obviated the need for offsite storage to manage issues of competing demands for collections and client spaces. As we reach the two-year mark from the commencement of storing 80% of the library collection in our Automated Retrieval Collection (ARC) we are reviewing our success measures and looking at what our clients' use of the ARC tells us about their resource needs and their adaptability to new methods of discovery and access.
