Audience Experience Level
Everyone

We will present a case study of our work-in-progress of migrating press.princeton.edu to Drupal 8. In the first phase, we have created a migration script to move over 11,000 published works and 40,000 related entities published over many decades into Drupal, and a content audit of tens of thousands of static HTML pages that has accumulated over the years. We will describe the technical and business motivations for the project, provide a technical overview of the Drupal migration, and of the the process challenges in dealing with this volume of content. Finally, we will describe the next set of challenges as we work with their Press to clarify their branding goals and redo the visual identity.
