Meet the tight-knit team that manages the massive archival collection at the university's Library Services Center in Laurel, Maryland. The staff fields thousands of requests each year for journal volumes, letters, and artifacts. "I've been working here for 25 years and the bay still impresses me," says Dave Keifer, the library services manager who oversees the facility with his small team. "It's not just physically imposing—it gives off this weird monolithic energy."
