This session will feature archivists active in implementing ArchivesSpace at their respective institutions. Participants will take 5 to 10 minutes to discuss a specific local issue they faced as part of their migrations and the solutions they developed. The issues to be discussed are not with the program itself, but rather with getting different types of collections, description formats, accession records, legacy content, and so on to work within the existing system. In other words, the discussion will showcase migration from the archivist’s perspective, not from the developer’s perspective. This session will have practical applications if you are in the early or planning stages of your migration, as well as if you are further along but facing similar concerns.

Topics discussed may include building and maintaining good working relationships with administration and IT, implementing ArchivesSpace as a nonmember institution, using ArchivesSpace to describe and provide access to unprocessed collections, and migrating from collection management systems other than Archon or ArchivesSpace. Time will be set aside at the end of the session for an open mic during which you will be encouraged to share your own problems and solutions and to ask questions of the panel and fellow audience members.
