While organisational silos are often viewed as an obstacle to overcome, this paper argues that they are a necessary feature of the workplace environment and should instead be approached in a manner that maximises their potential. This case study describes an approach used by three specialised areas at an academic library—cataloguing and metadata services, digital collections and digital preservation—to retrospectively manage the technical debt incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
