In this session, the presenters will deliver a brief presentation on the College of Charleston’s reorganization of the Collection Development, Cataloging, and Digital Scholarship and Services departments into one new department, “Collection and Content Services.”  The presenters moved into leadership positions during a time of major staff turnover and used this opportunity to reimagine the workflows and job roles of those in the department. Like all academic libraries, ours must balance budgetary restraints and institutional priorities while navigating the changing landscape of library services.

A lively discussion will follow the presentation, and audience participation and sharing of experience will be encouraged as a broad array of perspectives will provide useful for those facing similar challenges. Participants in this discussion should come away with strategies for managing reorganizations and change in general within their own department.
