Anything can happen in the Zone: Library and Departmental Change Driven by Migration to a Cloud-based Library Management System
Keywords:systems, change, migration, strategic planning, organizational change, technical services
AbstractButler University Libraries had already made progressive changes in public services areas, but Technical Services remained unchanged and bound to legacy practices from decades past. For us, the best catalyst for change was a system migration to a cloud-based type of management system. This system migration was tied to organizational restructuring and a new strategic plan, each of which intertwined with the details of the migration project and was underpinned by thoughtful analysis of how to help employees through change. Details of the migration are discussed in relation to how they inspired departmental and organizational change through updated technology.
