***Update***

Currently, the migration of the archive data is still ongoing and will last beyond the extended project goal. Users whose data has not yet been migrated will be contacted by email. You can check the current status of the migration on our reporting page. (*)

 

The “Archive Migration” project, in which we are transferring archived data from the TSM inventory system to the new target systems DigitalArchive and Coscine, is developing more and more into a mammoth project. Despite extensive planning of the five sub-projects and comprehensive communication on the classification of the archived nodes, unforeseeable problems occurred and continue to occur in the technical implementation of the migration, which are now leading to a project delay.

In fall, the archive nodes contained in the archive will be migrated. Until then, however, there is still a lot to do. While work is going on behind the scenes on the front end for the new Digital Archive and for the metadata form, among other things, we are also hard at work getting the new infrastructure up and running. But, for our node contacts, too, preparation is key. For this reason, we call on you to use the opportunity and the time until the migration to sift through archive nodes, prepare them if necessary, or even make the decision to part with data that is no longer needed or needs to be kept. In this article you will learn how to prepare your archive nodes for migration. Read the rest of this entry »
