Description

In late 2018 Pacific University made the decision to migrate its IR from BePress to Hyku (hosted by Ubiquity). The presentation will be an overview of the migration as a whole, as opposed to a deep-dive into one aspect of the migration. We will discuss how/why Ubiquity’s platform was chosen, the technical difficulties we encountered, and what we learned. Its aim is to give an example as well as explanation of how a small institution with an IR that also publishes journals and books successfully migrated away from BePress to another platform—which saved money, and had the additional benefit of no longer being connected to Elsevier.

Migrating an IR at a Small, Liberal Arts University

In late 2018 Pacific University made the decision to migrate its IR from BePress to Hyku (hosted by Ubiquity). The presentation will be an overview of the migration as a whole, as opposed to a deep-dive into one aspect of the migration. We will discuss how/why Ubiquity’s platform was chosen, the technical difficulties we encountered, and what we learned. Its aim is to give an example as well as explanation of how a small institution with an IR that also publishes journals and books successfully migrated away from BePress to another platform—which saved money, and had the additional benefit of no longer being connected to Elsevier.
