Rainbow of withdraws

In order to make our days a little more interesting, my coworker Meaghan and I decided to being tossing our withdraw copies of books up on the shelves by color, thus creating a book rainbow.  These are the books that, about once a week or so, get boxed up and sent to Internet Archive as they have been withdrawn from UF's collection.  We put the books up on these shelves one by one, or only a handful or so at a time, so it really doesn't take any more time than just putting them up in the order than we get them (thus, it is not impeding our duplicate processing efficiency).  And because they are withdrawn and will eventually end up in boxes to be shipped away, they need not be in any particular order.  So, without further ado, behold the awesomeness:

The funky border is from the stitching program I used to make a panorama because I had to take this picture through the shelving opposite our book rainbow and was unable to capture all of the amazing in just one shot.  These books have since been sent away, but we are in the process of creating a new and improved rainbow, this time moving left to right across the shelving for a continuum of color.
