Research Box is an online cart and request management system to improve the research request experience for researchers and archivists. The system makes it easier for researchers to navigate and find which (of the many) databases is the most useful and makes the process easier to get the items pulled off of the physical shelf. Meanwhile, it also simplifies archivists’ workflow by providing an infrastructure to handle the request process. Archivists can coordinate who’s handling what request, get a clear picture of the researcher’s needs, and print a pull sheet with location information to find and re-shelve items in the vault where there is no network access.
