In 2015, Radford University’s McConnell Library migrated to OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services (WMS), relinquishing three legacy systems in the process.  As a result, many of the Collection and Technical Services Department’s workflows changed considerably beginning months before the contract was signed. An extensive temporary departmental focus on data clean-up and training was required while maintaining core duties.  New opportunities for collaboration and communication emerged. In light of developing new workflows, Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians and Core Competencies for Print Serials Management were consulted in revising positions.  This presentation focuses on the process, management, communication and outcomes involved in migrating to a new next-generation library management system.
