High-tech robot couriers set efficiency in motion at the National Library of Australia

(17 August 2018) Libraries are shaking off their dusty reputations with the National Library of Australia (NLA) deploying a new fleet of high-tech robots to assist staff.

Each automated guided vehicle (AGV) stands around 1.5 metres and features three shelves to cart books around the library’s sprawling basement.

A large proportion of the NLA’s collection is stored below ground and comprises century-old texts, maps, overseas material and other archives.
