The University Library System at Wayne State University is in the midst of transforming to meet the needs of today's students. To meet its vision requires a fundamental reallocation of existing resources and retooling of the library employees' skills. This reallocation focuses on providing students, faculty, and library employees with instant access to information products and electronic delivery of innovative services. A project team, responsible for envisioning and implementing the new e-learning culture, developed a survey to assess the current hardware, software, and teamwork skills of the library employees and determine educational needs. Subsequently, the University Library System purchased Tablet PCs and software tools for promoting communication and collaborative efforts and began the development of learning materials to support the e-learning transformation.
