AssureVault operates two library depository facilities, one in Chesterland, Ohio, on the east side of Cleveland, and one in Gahanna, near Columbus.

Chesterland, Ohio

The Chesterland facility, adjacent to HF Group’s library bindery, has a capacity of 90,000 cubic feet and currently stores approximately 800,000 books and bound volumes for several major universities and institutions in the northeast Ohio area.

Gahanna, Ohio

The Gahanna facility was purpose-built to provide archives and library storage and depository services for The Ohio State University and other clients. Construction began in late 2014 and was completed in February, 2015.  With a storage capacity of more than 100,000 cubic feet, the depository currently holds more than 30,000 cubic feet of archives and library materials including special collections items of all sizes. Regular pickup and delivery service, including daily retrieval, is available as required.



Both facilities was designed specifically for the long-term storage of library materials and is equipped with environmental control systems to manage and monitor the temperature, humidity and air quality to very tight tolerances. Physical security, controlled access, fire protection and life safety are also key features of our facilities.

Items are managed using AssureVault’s high-availability, cloud-based Total Recall™ records and information management system that is hosted in the company’s SSAE 16-certified secure, dedicated, data center located in Canton, Ohio. The system is fully replicated, with failover capability, in a second SSAE 16-certified data center in Cleveland, Ohio, which operates on a completely separate power grid.


We offer a wide range of  pickup and delivery services that can be customized to meet your needs.

Digital document delivery is also available for journal articles and book chapters when retrieval and delivery of the physical volume is not required or preferred.
