As we transition more of our collections to electronic formats, the staffing levels and job in Collection Management departments are changing. Less print journals mean less need for a staff person to checkin, file and claim issues. Less funds for print books and more electronic book purchases or subscriptions to large packages, means less staff people to handle order requests, process received books and facilitate payments. What about the staff member whose job assignment has eroded or who’s physical ability to perform key parts of their job assignments have diminished over the years? Meanwhile the responsibilities of the department head continues to expand—institutional repositories, databases, interlibrary loan, etc,. In this session, participants will be invited to share their experiences with change management in their departments.
