The Asian Institute of Management (AIM), Knowledge Resource Center (KRC) is the primary source of teaching, learning, and research materials for the various stakeholders of AIM ever since its establishment in 1968. However, the KRC, traditionally known as the library, has remained lukewarm in making its services, collections, and facilities, up-to-date. This paper showcases various transformation initiatives undertaken by the KRC towards ensuring its continued relevance to its stakeholders through the conduct of various feedback gathering activities and by making sure that the KRCâ€™s strategic plan is anchored deeply to the Instituteâ€™s vision, mission, and goals. These transformation initiatives also considered how traditional library services can be viewed and transformed using modern approaches in libraries as lenses, without losing sight of the important, traditional, and time-tested mission of libraries. This paper also presents some recommendations that could help other libraries in their journey towards transformation.
