Building Faculty of Philosophy libraries WebPAC - experiences and lessons learned

Marijana Glavica, Dobrica Pavlinusic

We'll try to answer the question "how" we implemented our WebPAC. What were our goals, how we revised and adjusted them to changing conditions. We will describe environment in which we worked (19 different libraries, organizational structure which is not well defined, problems with floor space in libraries, insufficient communication between library staff and board to mention just a few.) Why we decided to solve our problem step by step, using existing Open Source solutions, no matter how complete or inadequate they are, instead of waiting for single "perfect" solution that will solve all our problems in one integrated package? What have we learned in the process and how that affected creation of new requirements? What are our future plans?
