Abstract

As the University of Minnesota’s Archives and Special Collections began the daunting task of migrating into ArchivesSpace over 5,000 finding aids from fifteen different units, a clearly defined workflow provided clarity and success. This article outlines how staff developed an implementation timeline and workflow, harnessed support from partners in IT, provided training, and what the benchmarks to success were. By sharing this welldocumented and thought-out implementation workflow, it can provide guidance as others try to navigate themanymoving parts of implementing new collection management technology.
