Description

Cloud computing has been actively discussed in recent years, and is making its way into the library field. It has advantages when libraries work with constrained financial resources. This article describes the procedures that the University Libraries at California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) took in 2010-2011 to migrate their major IT infrastructure from the ground to the cloud. It discusses the circumstances under which each decision was made, and the problems that the libraries encountered during and after the migration. It shows the benefits that the libraries gained and the lessons learned from these practices.
