Abstract or Description

Presentation given at Georgia Libraries Conference (GLC) In Spring 2017, Georgia Southern University and Armstrong State University began the process of consolidating into one university. Both Henderson Library and Lane Library had one library Operational Work Group (OWG) that was charged with consolidating the two libraries. Under that work group, a Fulfillment Task Force was charged with creating complementary policies for the Georgia Southern Libraries Access Services Department. The Fulfillment Task Force was made up of two representatives from each of the Access Services departments. This presentation will outline the policies that we reviewed and our process for creating complementary policies including how we became new colleagues and friends.
