The paper offers a case study of successful library moves. The Central Library of the Corvinus University of Budapest moved its collection of 11,000 metres of shelving to the new building of the university in 2007. The key elements of the successful accomplishment of the project included careful planning, efficient management and modified logistic processes ensuring user comfort. The paper describes the main work phases of the project: the planning of new locations in the new spaces, the inventory process and the downsize of the collection, the public purchase procedure necessary for the implementation of the project, the new collection map of the library, as well as the ICT solutions supporting collection and stack management. As a result, the move was carried out with the most efficient allocation of resources and the collection was reorganized in a new, service-centered way.
