Moving Libraries in SharePoint 2007

Question:
We have recently merged two departments here in Giddidy Business and as a result need to merge two SharePoint sites.
Is it possible to move a library from one location to another retaining all metadata, ownership and version history?

Answer:
This can be achieved using Site Actions/ Site Settings/ Site Administration/ Content and Structure. This will allow the movement of data between sites on the same site collection while retaining the metadata. Best to do a COPY first rather than a MOVE just to be sure !! Do it a piece at a time rather than moving the whole lot in one go .. just to be sure.

ALWAYS CHECK SIZE OF SOURCE DATA !!!!
