Title: A-Z List Migration: Employing Collaborative Project Management at the University of Guelph McLaughlin Library
Author: Brisbin, Kailey; Parlette-Stewart, Melanie; Oldham, Randy
Abstract: From 2003 – 2016, the University of Guelph McLaughlin Library maintained a custom ColdFusion database of databases. Motivated by a myriad of issues, a project working group set the goal of decommissioning the ColdFusion A-Z list and migrating to SpringShare LibGuides platform A-Z list feature. This article focuses on our A-Z list migration, highlighting the collaborative approach we took to curating our list of journal databases and operationalising and distributing this shared task across several teams within our library. This article describes our project and approach, lessons learned, recommendations and best practices, as well as future directions.
