In 2005, the State Library of Queensland began a project to design and implement an integrated system that could manage work requests from a single platform for units with diverse activities, including IT, facilities management, document delivery and reference services. The reward at the end of a comprehensive process analysis is a sophisticated work request management system, which has satisfied its original brief and demonstrated its capacity to adapt to organisational change. This discussion describes how the practical application of a system built on a call centre model has transformed the way the State Library manages its service and information transactions.
