Abstract/Description: When Florida State University started the migration from its old digital collections software into the Islandora platform, it became clear the actual migration wasn’t going to be the biggest problem; more than a decade’s worth of poor digital project planning and coordination was. In moving to the new platform and revisiting our old projects, it was an opportunity to take stock of everything digital; find the problems in projects over time, come up with ways to approach and solve them if possible and also put people and documentation in place to make sure they did not happen again.
