The 3 I know of are public access .. at least to the 'unclassified' stuff.

These have 'off site storage' where things that cannot be kept on the 
site are stored. If requested stuff in the 'off site storage' is moved 
to the main facility. While the 'off site storage'  is not it self 
accessible the materials stored there are.
I'd classify these 'off site storage' areas as warehouses, access=no. 
But they are not the places people go to get access to stuff.

Which ones are not public access, other than these 'off site storage'

Most libraries don't have access to all areas ... will these too be 
marked access=no with a node for the 'reading room?

When you go into a retail store .. you also don't get access to all 
areas .. shall these too be marked access=no???

When you go to a police station - you don't have access to all areas ... 

When you go to an art galley - you don't have access to all areas ... 

And so on.
