The Hochschulbibliothekszentrum serves a consortium of 100+ libraries in two federal states in Germany . Our upgrade from ALEPH V. 13 to V 16.x omitted V. 14 all together, thus stepping into data migration to Unicode format, redesigning the structures of the database, importing and exporting huge amounts of data, reindexing and presenting them to the connected local library systems (ALEPH and non-ALEPH). This paper reports on the decisions made before setting up the hardware, a brief project survey, and experiences with production parameters. Audience: Systems administrators, systems librarians, library managers Version: 13.2 – 16.2 Educational outcome: Exchange of experience
