When we moved 6 years ago into a remodeled building, every item that was
going to be moved was labeled and mapped out on a sheet. I gave the sheet to
the movers who put them at the right spot at the new location (right
orientation, spacing from the walls etc). The move was through the buildings
on the hallways. So it was not that bad. Delicate items (ultra-high vacuum
equipment, muon detector, chemicals, etc) were taken care of by myself. I
considered that labeling and mapping out in great detail before moving was
the key to the success of the move. Another one I learned during the move
was that it was the best time to pitch the old, unused items. It lightened
up the move. Even though it looked like we have plenty of space after the
move, today we are in need of more space. It is nice you have plenty of
shelf space. You will enjoy the fruits of your labor long time after the
move. Good luck and best wishes on your move! Jack

25 years at RU and I've never had my own office...or a window, for that

Congrats on the new digs....hope the move is smooth!
