Ivy Blackman, Managing Librarian at the Whitney Museum of American Art recently commented on the migration:
Thank you for working with so much flexibility and energy on this project. It's been a fantastic experience so far—every single person I've worked with has been knowledgeable, supportive, and cheerful (which really goes a long way with a big scary project like this).
