Case Study: Migrating Lehigh University’s historic student newspaper archive

We've just completed a really interesting project.

Earlier this year Lehigh University decided to migrate The Brown and White newspaper collection to Veridian.

In recent years the historic student newspaper has been presented online via a self-hosted CONTENTdm instance. 

Because OCLC was ceasing support for this version of the platform and charging significantly more for their hosted solution, the Lehigh digital archives team sought out a new solution. It was very important to the University that the article segmentation they had previously invested in would be preserved during the migration project. 

In the past we had migrated CONTENTdm collections to Veridian where the articles had not been defined (page level segmentation), but the Lehigh University project presented an opportunity for us to convert an article segmented newspaper collection from CONTENTdm for the first time.
