- ItemContinuous Migration: Challenges in Selecting a Digital Repository System(2023-04-28) Japha, AlexSession 10. Facilitating access to digitized or born-digital materials requires a functional digital repository platform capable of hosting a variety of different media formats. Numerous repository platforms exist, each with unique features and limitations. Selecting an appropriate repository platform is often a struggle between institutional needs, financial restrictions, and staff time and expertise. In this session, a panel of digital focused librarians and archivists will share their experiences with the repository selection and implementation process. Panelists will speak about the digital repository environment at large, what challenges they faced during selection, and how these challenges were addressed at their institutions.
- ItemThey’re in a Better Place Now: Navigating Collection Transfers(2023-04-27) Smith, Jasmine; Antos, Bethany J.; Glascock, SandraSession 9: Although transferring a collection of materials from one institution to another can be a big undertaking, rehoming it may enhance the accessibility and visibility of the materials, provide a better storage environment, or confer other advantages for one or both institutions. This presentation will address both the practical and philosophical sides of inter-institutional collection transfers. In addition to discussing the logistics and documentation of collection transfers, presenters will talk about why a particular collection move was proposed and accepted, and how it affected staff and researchers. This session will not discuss transfers that are part of scheduled records management activities.
