Abstract

The implementation of a university-wide virtual library inevitably causes significant changes within each department across the library and campus. However, real ownership comes about only with a commitment from management to 1) educate and train staff in the new technologies and procedures, 2) manage the change process as candidly as possible, and 3) disseminate information as openly and widely as possible. Each one of these commitments is essential to the change process.
