Organizational culture and administrative change: A case study at a metropolitan academic library

Document Type


Publication Date



This case study sought to define the organizational culture at a metropolitan academic library which is undergoing a major transition. Following a literature review which identified two in-depth studies of cultural change in two different academic libraries, this chapter analyzes the history, positive cultural aspects, and challenges faced by the library, and focuses on the values present in the library's culture before and after a change in the library's administration which involved a difficult transition. This research employed a mixed methodology of a survey, interviews, and document analysis; however, the results reported here are mainly from the interviews. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved..
