Abstract: This paper collects the strategies and tasks that the Appalachian State University Library undertook in preparation for the move of its physical collection to a new building from the old library. The paper discusses planning, supervision, winning campus support from stakeholders, and being mindful about the space in the new building and how it would be used well into the 21st century.
