The Big Shift: How the University of Houston Libraries Moved Everything
Sharpe, Paul A.
Journal of Access Services, v9 n2 p66-79 2012
More than a project, The Big Shift is an epic library tale for the ages. What starts as a simple collection shift grows into a major space-planning project, a lesson in catalog maintenance, and thanks to Hurricane Ike, a disaster recovery effort. The Big Shift tells the story of how the University of Houston Libraries handled the numerous roadblocks put in front of them during a large-scale project. It is hoped that readers from all areas of libraries will read, appreciate, and learn from these experiences. (Contains 3 figures.)
