HF Group's AssureVault division has been awarded a 5-year contract with The Ohio State University to provide specialized, off-site library repository storage and related management services.
We will provide a set of services for the relocation, storage and management of approximately 45,000 cubic feet of library materials, archives and unusual-sized special collection materials. Routine management services for the retrieval and return of items within the collections will be provided to the campus's library system.
AssureVault will prepare and open a specialized, dedicated repository facility in the Columbus area.
The facility will be equipped with environmental control systems to manage and monitor the temperature, humidity and air quality to very tight tolerances.
Management of assets will be accomplished through the use of our high-availability, cloud-based Total Recall records and information management system*, which is hosted in our secure, primary data center located in Canton, Ohio.
The facility is expected to be completed near the end of 2014, at which time we will coordinate the relocation of selected library materials and commence routine services.
