  • Change Management Consultant

    Request for Proposal - Change Management Consultant

    Deadline for receipt:

    Proposals must be received by December 9, 2016

    Proposals should be addressed to:

    Mark Jacobs, Executive Director
    Washington Research Library Consortium
    901 Commerce Drive
    Upper Marlboro, MD 20774


    Statement of purpose:

    Academic libraries exist in a rapidly evolving environment that requires us to be nimble, flexible and forward-thinking. The Washington Research Library Consortium is in the pre-implementation stages of a migration to Ex Libris’ Alma Library Management System and Primo discovery tool. The implementation of Alma and Primo, which will run from late fall 2017 to July 2018, will require each partner library and the Consortium as a whole to reimagine the work we do and consider new ways of doing that work.  The WRLC seeks proposals from qualified consultants who can provide the Consortium partners with a methodology to successfully guide our librarians, staff, and leadership through a transformation process that will enable us to to take full advantage of all the opportunities these changes give us.
