Abstract:  Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to describe a state mandated merger of two institutional repositories from two separate campuses of a university into one new institutional repository. Due to a State Legislature mandate, the University of South Florida was required to merge institutional repositories from two campus into one new institutional repository.


USF Libraries formed a committee, planned for the migration and executed of the migration.


The authors discovered many unforeseen issues during the process of the migration such as difficulties with site redirects and hidden collections.


This project was a large-scale migration of institutional repositories, under a tight deadline due to a legislative mandate, that has not been discussed in detail in the literature.
