Academic libraries in Germany are constantly changing due to new developments in higher education influenced by digital transformations in research and instruction and study, as well as in reaction to scientific-political impulses. The changes occur in multiple fields, at various speeds, and sometimes simultaneously or unexpectedly. This results in continuous change management that encompasses various factors, such as organizational and personnel development, the library’s service offerings and cooperation with partners within and without the university.
