The systems office, at the College of William and Mary’s Swem Library, evolved from a hierarchical department to a modified team structure. Along the way, the role of the systems librarian has changed from a department head to a member of a team. A unique blend of timing and personalities made this transition both possible and practical. While the systems librarian now works on the same administrative level as non‐librarians, there is still a fundamental difference in how the systems librarian functions within the library. This role of the systems librarian has changed in complexity but still comes down to bridging the worlds of library and technology.
