Abstract: Using Steven Carl Fortriede's method in Moving Your Library: Getting the Collection from Here to There as a framework, we successfully moved the New York University Abu Dhabi Library from a library and offsite storage facility to one new library. While we generally followed Fortriede’s advice, we deviated from his plan in three important ways: we created a color-coding system for the boxes, which eliminated the need to keep the boxes in strict order; we integrated two collections during the move (rather than before); and we created phantom books to create space for lengthy multi-volume sets in the smaller collection.
