Keynote Speaker Announced for "Moving On: Migrating Library Content and Data"
President-elect of the Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures, the newest division of the American Library Association and Head of Collection Strategies and Scholarly Communication at the University of Rochester, Lindsay Cronk will present the keynote session, "What Moves Us: Approaching Migration, Managing Change". Exploring the tensions of migration in an increasingly constrained marketplace and economy, this keynote address will identify and explore the forces driving big moves in library collections and workers.
"This link worked yesterday – why doesn't it work now?" Whether it's migrating all your MARC records to a new catalog system or updating URLs when an e-book vendor changes their platform, most library staff members encounter a migration at least once in their career. These processes can be daunting, but they don't have to be scary.
