At the 15th annual ER&L conference (March 2020), Ken Peterson, Dartmouth’s Associate Librarian for Access & Collection Strategies at Dartmouth College, and Galadriel Chilton, IPLC’s DCI shared how 6 IPLC libraries of diverse sizes completed a project on time and under budget. They described how the team found their way across the zone of ambiguity, avoided dreaded scope creep, and successfully collaborated through thoughtful project management frameworks. Their presentation focused on practical processes and lessons learned from a collection analysis feasibility study. Link: Presentation Slides.
