Description

In July 2017, all 8 UGC libraries moved from their independent Integrated Library System to a shared cloud-based ILS system. This presentation discusses the rationales for the migration, what the local institution went through during the process and what we hope to gain with this migration. More importantly, by collectively engaging with a Change Manger to re-engineering local and consortium process to maximize the functions of the new system, how we intend to move into deep collaboration to achieve mutual benefits.
