Communication, Collaboration, and Transformation: Building Organic Connections Between the Library and IT Divisions at Bowdoin

Monday, March 19 | 9:30PM–9:30PM
Session Type: Resources
Many colleges have merged Library and Information Technology divisions, resulting in culture clashes and resentment. Instead, Bowdoin College developed collaboration organically through a four-person library and IT group. Initiatives were developed that increased communication, understanding, and collaboration at the operations and strategic levels to ensure quality services to the community.
