The University of Houston Libraries, in collaboration with Stanford University, DuraSpace, Indiana University and the Digital Public Library of America, will develop a toolkit to help institutions accomplish complex system migrations. Focusing primarily on migrations from CONTENTdm to Hyku, the toolkit will allow institutions to better understand their digital library ecosystems and how they can prepare for migration. It will include content such as documentation on the theoretical approaches to migration, instructions on how to conduct a needs assessment based on analyzing metadata structures and understanding system requirements, best practices for preparing repository data for migration, and specialized tools to assist users with migration to Hyku.
