DescriptionThe Libraries Satellite Shelving Facility (LSS) is a crucial part of the Libraries building infrastructure. This secure building, located on Sullivan Drive and occupied by the Libraries since 2002, houses rare and unique materials from the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC). These collections are irreplaceable and essential to the Libraries’ mission of supporting teaching, research, and scholarly innovation. They are also vital to supporting and enriching the many outreach initiatives and events for alumni, students, and donors that are conducted each year by NC State’s colleges, departments, and centers.
