Before COVID-19 pandemic made work-at-home arrangements a normality, the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) upgrades at the University of North Texas Library required the displacement of the Digital Projects Lab staff and students from their lab for an estimated six weeks. With little access to digitization equipment, the lab planned to continue running during that period. By presenting the preparation and planning for the move, the logistics of the transition, and the results from the experience, the authors hope to share their strategies for digitization lab mobility and continued, off-site productivity.
