Title: RE: Quick Question: Library Stack Loads

i've seen 300psf several times based upon the actual weight of shelving fully loaded with 50psf in the planned aisles.

and then again, have you ever seen an older building where owners wanted to do something like spacesaver shelveing, had it work and said to yourself, "That design engineer sure was overly conservative !"

in the case of live loading, louis sullivan was wrong: Less is not more, more is more.  Sooner or later the shelves store heavier media (microfim, fische, tape, etc.)
