The University of Florida George A. Smathers Libraries planned a full website migration during the Spring of 2020. This move involved moving the library website and content from an old content management system, with dated design and limited responsiveness to WordPress. This process involved the Library Technology Services, Web Unit, and also included over 60 web editors from around the libraries. Just as the WordPress training had started and the initial migration activities were initiated the library staff were all moved to working remotely due to COVID. This project briefing will focus on the efforts to keep this large project moving, while needing to be highly flexible and adapt to the changing pandemic situation. From adapting training needs, to using new project communication tool sets, the project was able to keep progress moving towards completion.
