The Lebanese American University Libraries started a 5 year plan for shifting serials titles from print to online. This shift was based upon the library Directors decision in 2008 by which 30% of serials collections should be shifted to online by 2013.
This presentation is a case study about the “shift to online” project. It focuses on the stages and phases of this shift with special emphasis on the importance of the team work spirit, and coordination between Electronic Resources and Serials departments. It also stresses out the importance of centralization of the Serials department which played a major role in identifying duplication (print and online). The main challenge was and still is how to handle the switch of individual titles, including the budgetary constraints.
