In 1998 over 1,000 library systems were sold worldwide. Many libraries, faced with users’ demands for increased system functionality, are considering purchase of new systems. The key to a successful implementation is proper management of time; time for planning, time for data conversion and time for the new system’s introduction – the consequences of undue haste may abound for many years. Each of these stages has many considerations including legal procedures, drafting of the system specification or a review of the functionality of available products, detailed conversion issues relating to differences between old and new systems, training and future development or product support. A short case study of the University of Exeter’s change from LIBERTAS to INNOPAC demonstrates many of the issues arising during a successful implementation.
