This panel explores the issues and setbacks encountered and the strategies and solutions created by five ArchivesSpace early-adopters while migrating to and implementing the software at their respective institutions.  The speakers discuss the content management systems from which they migrated (including Archivists Toolkit, Archon, Re:Discovery, and homemade systems), explore the issues and opportunities encountered during the migration process, and discuss how ArchivesSpace is or is not meeting their needs in production.
