Abstract

This case study explores how efforts to simultaneously implement a new content management system and a storage management system while preparing and physically moving materials to a new high-density, off-site facility provided unique opportunities and challenges for improving intellectual control of archival materials at the University of Arkansas Special Collections. The authors explore their decision-making process and subsequent outcomes, while offering advice for institutions approaching similar projects.
