Offsite Collections Facility

The University of Minnesota is dedicated to preserving collections on behalf of the University, state, and nation. The Offsite Collections Facility (OCF) provides a centralized offsite storage facility on the Twin Cities campus (Como area) to meet this need for University Libraries for years to come while returning valuable existing square footage to the heart of campus.
