Managing Archival Metadata Migration (is Maddening)
MetadataShow full item record
ArchivesSpace is quickly becoming the preferred software for managing archival collections. As such, institutions are grappling with the challenges that come from migrating years of legacy collection metadata into ArchivesSpace as well as from integrating ArchivesSpace with other software systems. While pathways exist to migrate data between ArchivesSpace and a small number of other systems, working archivists use a much broader set of tools to manage and provide access to their collections. In this panel, archivists of all experience levels will describe ways they implemented and integrated ArchivesSpace with other tools and developed work-arounds when the tools were not a natural fit.
