Dear ArchivesSpace member representatives and users,

The ArchivesSpace team is happy to report that the script for migrating Archon data to an ArchivesSpace implementation is now available for use by ArchivesSpace General members.  The migration script can be downloaded from https://docs.archivesspace.org/tools/index.html.

The resources for migrating data from Archivists' Toolkit and Archon include 1) the migration script plugins, 2) migration guidelines, and 3) and source-to-target mappings.

The AT and Archon plugins are scripts for executing migrations.  The migration guidelines for Archivists' Toolkit and Archon explain how to prepare for migration, to use the migration scripts, and to assess the success of the migration.  The source-to-target mappings indicate how data is migrated from fields in Archivists' Toolkit or Archon to ArchivesSpace.

The AT to ArchivesSpace and Archon to ArchivesSpace migration tools are now available to all ArchivesSpace members.  Each migration tool and associated documentation will be released to the public 180 days after the initial release of each tool, that is, May 12 for the AT script and July 21 for the Archon script.

In addition to the migration resources, ArchivesSpace team has a migration specialist on staff until October 2014.  As requested, the migration specialist will assist member institutions to migrate data from Archivists' Toolkit or Archon to ArchivesSpace.  Initially, as with the migration scripts, the migration specialist will be available only to assist charter members for the first ninety days after the release of the migration resources.  The migration specialist will be available to assist general members as general members are permitted access to the migration scripts.  Even though all migration resources will eventually be made available to the general public, the migration specialist will only provide migration support to ArchivesSpace members.
