Data migrations can be intimidating for everyone, but there are ways to think about and organize them that can make them more likely to succeed. This discussion session will feature two panelists: Jeremy Katz from the Breman Museum, who recently completed a collections management system migration, and Kristina Spurgin, data migration specialist at LYRASIS. Jeremy will speak about the process from the perspective of a museum professional, including highlighting the methods and practices that worked best during the Breman's migration. Kristina has worked with a wide variety of data and systems during her career and will speak more broadly about some of the challenges and potential pitfalls of data migrations, as well as strategies she has employed to make the process more transparent, auditable, and safe.
Speakers: Kristina Spurgin, Data Migration Specialist, LYRASIS and Jeremy R Katz, Senior Director, Archives, the Breman
