A thrilling tale of data imports…

May 24, 2010

My colleague Lorrie McAllister and I have been working on bringing our school’s digital library into a Drupal environment. This is a project which has been underway for almost a year now, and we are now at the stage where we are migrating the production data set.

We are working on a set of documentation of our process, as it has become quite convoluted at times. When things are farther along I hope to share the gory details, but for right now I want to briefly mention that the Table Wizard and Migrate modules have been godsends. Many, many thanks are due to mikeryan and the folks at Cyrve. Having attempted far less complicated data imports in the past on other projects, I was more than a little nervous about this import. After playing with these two modules for a while, I am far less nervous.

More details coming soon.
