  • Description
  • Specifications

You want that opportunity to leave a lasting impression of tradition and quality. Your thinking strong, solid oak shelves, rich beautiful colors and of course a functionality that will service generations to come.

The Oxford Series has been in production for decades and can be found in some of the most distinguished schools in the country. This line offers Paladin's newest circulation components that are breaking ground on making corners more functional. Dare to replace that dead space in the typical 90-degree corner units of the circulation desk with a new corner book drop or with the new corner patron accessible monitor stand unit. Put the new book drop bin to work for you. Available only in the Oxford line, this new unit will save you time and money. The books gather in the tilt bin on one side while the specially designed book truck is parked on the other, ready and waiting for you to stack the books for shelving. Look for more innovative ideas that build on the long standing needs of the modern librarian.
