Do you have a collections move on the horizon? It is never too early to prepare for such a project! Moving a collection is a significant undertaking, whether you are moving circulating collections or special collections, large or small. Even if you do not have a move on the horizon, there is a good chance that at some point in your library career you will be asked to assist with or manage a collections move.

This workshop will prepare you to plan and implement a move; content is appropriate for librarians from public, private and academic institutions. Take away materials, including a bibliography and move planning templates will be provided. You will learn about best practices from a library relocation specialist who is an expert in her field and hear from librarians who have recently completed moves who will share practical advice and lessons learned. 

Presenter: Diane M. Pikul, National Library Relocations, Inc. (NLR)

Diane earned her MLS from Southern Connecticut State University and has worked as a director of public services, an instructor for para-professional library programs, and for the last 20 years as a library relocations specialist for National Library Relocations, Inc., one of the top three library relocation companies in the United States. She has planned and managed moves of diverse collections for universities, public libraries, museums, historical societies, and special libraries.
