During the past 25 years, the Central Library of the Corvinus University of Budapest was constantly going through organisational restructuring, in order to integrate new tasks and services. The most important factors that affected the organization of work were the changes of the higher educational system, the ensuing downsize of university staff, the new user requirements as well as the new library building opened in 2007. These challenges led to the complete restructuring of the organization in order to ensure the effective and efficient functioning of the library. The previously hierarchical structure was transformed into a knowledge organization based on internal and external collaboration and knowledge transfer. The reorganization was accomplished in one year.
