Abstract:
On January 8th 2013, Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University consolidated to form Georgia Regents University. With this consolidation, ASU Reese Library and GHSU Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library administratively combined. The two libraries serve very different user populations. Reese provides access to a broad range of information resources for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and community users. Greenblatt provides access to evidence-based resources in support of teaching, research, and clinical care for students, faculty, community users, and the GRU Health System. As part of the consolidation process, Reese and Greenblatt faculty and staff collaborated on reconciling differences in policies, procedures, service models, collection development, and library governance, all while seeking opportunities to enhance and innovate services. In this panel presentation, Reese and Greenblatt librarians will address challenges faced in the consolidation process, including combining GIL catalogs, expanding the liaison program, planning a consolidated website, and learning how to navigate differences in organizational culture.
