Collaborating across departments can be both fruitful and challenging. Collaboration across institutions in a consortium can be even more worthwhile and presents more hurdles to cross. Collaboration across institutions in multiple countries on an open source project is definitely rewarding and has a number of demands. What happens when you have to navigate all of these types of collaborations to ensure that the migration to your new library service platform is as successful as possible? In this presentation, I will talk about these different types of collaborations at the University of Massachusetts Amherst which is part of the Five College Consortium as we as a consortium migrate to the open source library service platform FOLIO.
