Presentation Description

From the point where a library decides to make the switch to the point where it goes “live” with a new system, implementation planning and management is usually dominated with the concerns of data migration, electronic resource management, authentication, and staff training. In this presentation, I will use the experience of my institution as a case study for how to include information literacy and library instruction programs within the priorities of project management. More importantly, the transition to a new system will also be used as an opportunity to re-evaluate student understanding of information literacy skills and concepts.
