Abstract

As digital repositories evolve, so to do the needs of institutions who employ them. Increasingly institutions are faced with the daunting task of migrating content from one repository to another. But what strategies exist to help institutions identify suitable repositories and effectively and efficiently plan and execute a migration? This workshop aims to explore the issues and strategies of repository (re)selection and migration.

Participants will learn about the different phases of a migration process including: system evaluation and selection, migration planning, and implementation strategies and tools. Throughout the workshop, participants will actively explore these phases as they relate to their organizational context and come away with questions and next steps for planning for system selection and/or a migration at their own institution.

The workshop will be led by members of the Bridge2Hyku (B2H) Project, an Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership/Project Grant (LG-70-17-0217-17) initiative led by UH Libraries to support the creation of the B2H Toolkit- a suite of resources for migration planning and implementation.
