Hello Everyone,

Thank you for the many responses.

Brian,

Regarding "migrating by hand" did you mean redoing each publication in turn OR doing a batch export (from EPrints without Recollect) then import to EPrints with Recollect?
We would like to be able to access both through the same portal/interface so integration of publications and data collections are what we are after.

Many thanks.

Best regards,
Kahena

Thanks Ian, John and Stewart, I'll try and do my best (I'll submit the patched version and will try to build a bazaar package).

The plugin wouldn't accept the publication field from Google scholar exported entries, nor would it allow UTF8 encoded strings to be imported (both problems have been spotted from the web import functionality). So, I tried to resolve them myself, and I found the following corrections that seem to solve the problems.

Kahena,

Installing the Recollect plugin will definitely change the workflow in an existing repository as well as add some fields and if I remember correctly other code that may not be wanted in an existing EPrints archive.  We were able to successfully integrate "Recollect" into our existing IR but as Adam has indicated much care should be used if doing so.  The package really is meant for those that are starting out with a new/clean EPrints repository with the mind set of only accepting data sets.  

I would highly suggest you install this into a separate test/development archive first and then work the changes into your existing repository.  We decided to separately install Recollect into an empty clean separate EPrints installation first and then we determined what was different between our existing archive and the new Recollect archive and then migrated the changes by hand to our existing archive.  This seemed to be the safest process for us and during the process we reviewed the fields we already had with the new fields created.  Some of these kept, some of these we augmented and some of these we just decided we didn't need.  We essentially used the Recollect package to augment our existing dataset item type field wise and pretty much we ignored the rest.  This way we can now more accurately acquire data set items without losing the existing workflow/processes in our existing IR.

Hope this helps.

Brian.

I would guess the biggest issue will be with making sure that the data types (Recollect uses data_collection instead of everything else including dataset) and metadata fields are mapping appropriately.  I'm not aware of it removing the old types (unless I've done something particularly bizarre with mine...).  The other thing is if you're migrating from a much older version of EPrints - that may introduce additional complications.

I'm not sure what would *break* from using it, but you might lose functionality or make stuff invisible.  I've not done it before, so am also guessing.

Be careful, the ReCollect plugin "reprofiles" your repository (i.e. makes it significantly different).  It's really designed to turn your repository into a stand-alone data repository (please correct me if I'm wrong, EPrints community).

I would suggest having  a play, and then figuring out which items to migrate.  If there are significant changes to the database schema, migration may be difficult.  I don't have any direct experience with this, so I don't really know.
