Easing Renovation Disruptions with Web 2.0 Tools
MetadataShow full item record
The Thompson Library, the main library of The Ohio State University, began a major renovation fall quarter 2006 that required that the library close for a period of 3 years. During this time, the bulk of the circulating collection and many of the personnel relocated to an interim facility. The distance imposed by the renovation created special challenges for service to patrons and communication among library faculty and staff. The OSU Libraries used blogs, podcasts, a wiki, instant messaging, and the campus course management system to reach as many of the constituents of the campus community as possible.
