Abstract:
Presentation on draft Casebook for Revitalizing Legacy Databases / Data Sets developed for SSLLI 2011. The Casebook is intended for use in evaluating and migrating legacy databases and data sets present in libraries. The Casebook includes: an introduction section; cases or examples of legacy databases and data sets needing migration that are currently in use in Florida libraries; and a recommendations and resources section. Florida, and thus Florida libraries, has been a forerunner in many technological areas. The early adoption of new technologies resulted in implemented technologies that were quickly superseded. Lack of resources prevented the migration of many of these to newer technologies, and this is especially the case for small, legacy databases. These small databases often contain valuable information in the form of simple data sets; however, the databases in their current form are often both difficult to access at all and difficult to use. In many cases, the legacy databases could now be migrated to simple technologies that would better enable access and use, and that would have lower resource demands than are required to support the legacy systems in addition to other systems. These databases need to be migrated to ensure the content is in a sustainable format in terms of digital preservation and cost control. These databases also need to be migrated in order for their contents to meet ADA accessibility requirements for web access and to be generally findable, accessible, and useful in a modern, web-scale world. While there is a clear need to migrate these databases, the process of migration is unclear. The Casebook includes: a full case summary for each database to explain the context in which the database was created; its current need and reasons for use; current costs; obstacles to migration; migration costs; and resources for migration.
