The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) Library has run the successful CaltechDATA institutional data repository on the Invenio platform since 2017. This fall the repository was migrated to InvenioRDM, a community-developed repository platform that takes the best features of Zenodo and bundles them into a customizable package. This presentation will share details about how InvenioRDM was customized, as well as how the migration of over 20,000 records was managed. The migration team implemented best practices for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data, including the use of ORCID identifiers for researchers and ROR identifiers for affiliations and funders. Migration of application programming interface integrations with microPublication Biology and “The Atlas of Bacterial & Archaeal Cell Structure” will also be highlighted. Finally, the briefing will include discussion of progress in migrating the institutional publications repository, CaltechAUTHORS, to InvenioRDM.
