Abstract: Academic libraries embody a highly dynamic and technology-rich environment, where it is usual to have more than one technology based project occurring simultaneously. Adoption of project management methodologies can help reduce the time and cost of a project. Increasingly, at the institutional level, multiple technology projects compete for time and resources, which very often results in new projects dragging on and on for lack of clear prioritization and dedicated resources, and managers asking already maxed-out staff to do more multitasking. Methods and tools for multiple project management can help administrators properly plan, select and prioritize projects within an academic library, ensuring strategic alignment and a high rate of project completion.
