From 2008-2010, the State Library of Victoria has implemented five enterprise-wide library systems as part of the SLV21 project planning framework. A considerable amount of time and effort has been put into working with data flow across these different systems to ensure that staff workflows and data use and re-use is properly managed. This paper will cover a range of data modelling and planning that has been necessary to work with each system. Some best practice methods are discussed and outcomes and recommendations put forward.
