About this item
This guide shows librarians how to address the technical and conceptual challenges of migrating services, records, and types of data using existing staff and commonly available technical resources. In 13 chapters, librarians from US universities describe the migration and planning process; formats used in migrations, technical challenges presented by data, and methods for cleaning, correcting, and modifying exported data; tools used for migrating data by staff without programming skills; working with MARC data and analysis, cleaning, reclamation, and data structuring tasks using MarcEdit; migrating bibliographic and item data, acquisitions data, serials data, electronic resources, and institutional repositories and digital collections; authentication and migrating patron data; migrating from individually maintained to shared systems; deciding what to delegate to vendors when migrating digital libraries; and testing and putting the final system into full production.
