 In December 2016 Montana State University Library migrated to Ex Libris’ Alma unified resource management system.  In the first year using the system, as new workflows were identified, opportunities to streamline processes arose. As a result, in July 2018 the Collection Development (CD) and Resource Description & Metadata Services (RDMS) departments were merged into a single department, Collection Access and Technical Services (CATS).  The formation of this new department has in turn led to physical changes to the technical services area at MSU Library.  The presenter will address the workflow changes, the process of merging the departments, and describe the physical changes currently underway. 

1.) Share how workflows were affected by the migration to the new library management system, 2.) Share how the decision to merge departments was reached, and 3.) Address the physical changes resulting from the merger.
