We are currently approaching our launch of VuFind, and will be retiring our previous catalogs. We are interested in identifying a means of migrating user Favorites and Lists from our previous catalogs.


Assuming that we can export the user saved records and lists from the previous catalogs, has anyone developed a means of importing this data into VuFind? Is there documentation detailing the table and field names where this information would reside under VuFind?


I believe that we will be able to export our data in the form of:



                ListName (repeatable)

                                RecordID (repeatable)


I expect that the patron and record IDs will be stable across our systems.
