Project management is a current topic in management, and project management offices are springing up in many organizations. Libraries may not need a project management office, but adoption of project management techniques, rightsized for library needs, can focus scope, define and organize tasks, and manage resources for many kinds of projects.

This paper describes UNH’s use of selected project management techniques and tools in a major collection integration and relocation project.
