NISO Has a New Recommended Practice Covering Content Platform Migrations
NISO (National Information Standards Organization) published a new Recommended Practice, NISO RP-38-2021, Content Platform Migrations, “which provides guidance to improve processes and communication between all parties, with suggested steps involved before, during, and after the migration of content from one platform to another.” The press release continues:
Content platforms, either developed by publishers themselves, or licensed from platform vendors, enable libraries and their patrons to access and interact with scholarly content. Every year, for a variety of reasons, publishers move their content from one platform to another. Making migrations as smooth as possible—with no broken links, loss of functionality, interruptions in access, or loss of customer information—significantly benefits librarians, publishers, service providers, and users alike. This new Recommended Practice, developed by the librarians, publishers, and content platform providers on the Content Platform Migrations Working Group, intends to streamline the process and clarify the communications needed to ensure seamless transitions. The final version incorporates feedback received from the wider community during the public comment period earlier this year.
