What happens to your email when you graduate or retire from Swarthmore College? Will you be able to open today’s photos in five years? As new technology emerges and current technology becomes obsolete, we need to actively manage our digital possessions to keep them available for years to come. Don’t worry – friendly campus archivists, librarians, and ITS staff are here to help!

Personal digital archiving means taking steps (small or big) to ensure your family memories, personal and professional papers are safe from disaster, human error, or everyday digital wear and tear. This workshop will introduce key issues and best practices for preserving your digital possessions.

Snacks provided.

Sponsored by: Friends Historical Library, Information Technology Services, and Digital Initiatives & Scholarship.
