ABSTRACT
This paper takes a holistic and broad look at introducing and managing change in libraries to improve support for the creation and open publication of digital research resources. It uses a case study approach - the example being Victoria University of Wellington Library, New Zealand - to explore in depth organisational development and design. The case study, supplemented by the literature and other library examples, focuses upon changes initiated at Victoria to create a new Library Strategy, culture and organisational structure. Specifically it highlights the changes required to improve access to open research resources and to ensure ongoing innovation in this space during a period of constraint. The changes illustrated in the paper, and reflections on the global research and educational context, lead to consideration as to whether these particular developments at one university illustrate the maturing of the model of digitisation from special project to digitisation and digital publication as core business.
