Bridge2Hyku Tools for Training: Repository Selection, Migration, and Skills for Success


Content migration from proprietary systems to open source repositories remains a barrier for many institutions due to lack of tools, tutorials, and documentation. The University of Houston Libraries, in partnership and consultation with numerous institutions, was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership/Project Grant to support the creation of the Bridge2Hyku (B2H) Toolkit which aims to remove obstacles to adoption and migration. The Toolkit, which includes general migration strategies and use cases as well as tools for transitioning from CONTENTdm to Hyku, acts as a comprehensive resource to facilitate repository migration. This talk will highlight how the toolkit can be a training resource for repository selection and migration, and will include discussion of the knowledge and skills needed to work on digital repository selection and migration.
