Melissa Bailey, University Library Melissa Bailey Organization, dedication and perseverance were needed as Melissa Bailey, a library assistant, took on the role of “Collections Move Coordinator” for this year’s move of the entire UWSP Library from Albertson Hall to an offsite location and various on-campus locations. From measuring the space requirements and logistics to organizing the collection and acting as a liaison for the contracted movers, Melissa handled obstacles and complications with determination and grace. She taught herself Adobe Photoshop to create color coded shelving maps and learned Alma Analytics to run reports that better facilitated the move. During this time she also took on additional responsibilities after the retirement of a colleague. The smooth transition between library spaces and the continuation of services for students and the wider community was due to Melissa’s efforts. She also was a hub of information for library and University College staff, creating a weekly newsletter and spreadsheet on move-related information.
