Hi all,

I’m forwarding this for Cheryl from the Member Representatives list in case anyone here has made a move from Eloquent and has suggestions or advice. The program team will also reach out with some ideas.

Subject: [Archivesspace_member_reps] Migrating Data from Eloquent Systems to ArchivesSpace

Hello all,

I am under significant time constraints to move my data from Eloquent Systems to ArchivesSpace as my contract with Eloquent is over effective April 30. I was led to believe that my data could be exported in EAD format. Unfortunately, that is not true. I can only export my data into ASCII delimited text format.

I am flying blind here and I know there is not an easy "fix." If I need to manually input my records, then I need to start doing that right away. If there is a way to convert ASCII into a workable migration format, then I need advise on how to accomplish that conversion.

Some background: earlier in the year, my IT Director told me he had figured out how to do this migration. He has resigned taking that information with him although I am not sure that he actually had figured it out.

I am willing to do the work. I just need a process.

Thank you,

Cheryl L. Ziegler, MLIS
