Title: Moving to a New Ideal – A Relocation of a Performing Arts Library
Authors: Novara, Vincent J.
Type: Technical Report
Keywords: Library moving
Archival moving
Performing arts libraries
Issue Date: Aug-2012
Abstract: This report examines the experiences of a state university branch library relocation across campus to a new facility still under construction. The branch library possessed varying formats including books, scores, recordings, special collections, instruments, and office equipment. Multiple dependencies ¬– construction issues and the subsequent relocations of other campus libraries ¬– influenced the relocation and are also discussed. Recommendations are offered for working with professional movers, composing a request for proposal from contractors, and negotiating a bureaucratic procurement process. Furthermore, the report provides a model for how to plan and execute such a relocation, while analyzing situations to avoid.
