[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Past Perfect migration?

Good morning Miranda,

I do not believe that there is an existing import template for PastPerfect.  That said, I know that PP will export into excel.  From there, you could use the Harvard plugin to get your data into ASpace.  (The plugin is part of the core code for version 2.8 (think I have the # right)).  If you're using an earlier version, you can add the plugin and use it to import resource records from excel.  (Your accession records can go in through the built in importer.

It is doable - it will just require a bit of extra work.

Good luck with the project!

All the best,

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Past Perfect migration?


My institution is brand-new to ArchivesSpace and has been using Past Perfect for 20+ years. I'm hoping to be directed to documentation to help me plan how to migrate data from Past Perfect into ArchivesSpace. Has anyone already done this and could you point me to the documents/videos that helped you?

Thank you and apologies if this isn't an appropriate question for this group!
