[Koha] Millennium to Koha

You may find some of my presentation from Code4Lib 2010 to be useful.  I did
the first Millennium to Koha migration (or at least I was the first to claim
credit for it!) when I was at New York University Health Sciences Libraries.

Slides: http://code4lib.org/files/BecomingTrulyInnovative.ppt

Generally speaking, you'll want your bibliographic and authority data out in
MARC, and your patron and circulation information in CSV (exported from
Create Lists in Millennium).  The methods outlined in the presentation are a
bit roundabout, as we were in a particularly difficult situation at the time
and could not use more standard export methods (like Data Exchange), but
they work, and serve to outline the process.

Hope this helps!
