Title: Achieving Revolutionary Library Transformation Incrementally

Abstract: Over the past five years the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport Corporate Research and Information Center (CRIC) has been transformed into a 21st century information and resource center, offering streamlined on-demand library resources and extensive information management services via the Research Commons, an online digital library platform and institutional repository intended to support mission requirements by increasing cross-command research collaboration and knowledge sharing.
In 2012, the command considered shuttering the library. Leadership accepted an eleventh hour proposal to incrementally transform services while cutting resources, and in less than five years the CRIC has become the most progressive Warfare Center library and a hub for innovation. Progress has been strategically incremental, both to overcome limited resources and to prevent service innovations from alienating our users. I will relay how this was accomplished, from early planning to execution, and the processes we put in place to identify and evolve services anticipation of our user’s needs.
