506 - You Are Not Alone! Navigating the Implementation of New Archival Systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Considering transition to a new system of digital asset management, public access, or collections curation? Archivists representing a diverse group of institutions discuss project planning, methodology, and intellectual and technological considerations used during implementation of ArchivesSpace (from the Archivists' Toolkit and from scratch!), Archivematica, Hydra/Fedora, and Islandora, Zendesk, and Oral History Metadata Synchronizer. Presenters address legacy metadata migration, transition from homegrown tools, the challenge of big projects with small staffs, and successful workflows.
