System migrations are inevitable. Migration can come in the form of moving data from one content management system to another, upgrading software, or switching from vendor-based solutions to open source. Since it is not a question of “if” a migration happens, but “when,” more training and skill development is needed to help library staff manage these changes. Metadata migration can be made easier with project planning, developing workflows, and using specific tools and techniques. This program will explore best practices, tools, and case studies in metadata migration, with an emphasis on practical knowledge that can be applied for librarians dealing with their own metadata migration projects.
