Publication No. 49 of the Association of College and Research Libraries entitled Restructuring Academic Libraries: Organizational Development in the Wake of Technological Change states “the swift advance of computer networking has disrupted print‐age organizational structures in higher education and invaded the academic library’s traditional autonomy. Such fundamental change impels libraries to develop new institutional arrangements to support digital‐based research and curricular programs”. With this in mind, this paper examines the Meriam Library at California State University, Chico, using the four ranges of restructuring outcomes of boundary spanning, as described in the publication, as benchmarks to measure and assess what opportunities and achievements in organizational changes have occurred over the last decade.
