Our personal and professional records are now primarily digital, and our lives are geared toward constant sharing of these works from our own scholarly output to family photos. The complexity of these growing collections in every sphere of our lives cannot be overstated. The Quaker and Special Collection’s Personal Digital Archiving Day Workshop welcomes anyone that is interested in ensuring long-term access to these personal collections and archives. The workshop will share best practices for creating, managing, and preserving your personal digital records, discuss issues affecting personal digital archiving practices such as copyright, privacy, and security as well as provide some hands-on activities.
The workshop will take place in the Phillips Wing in Magill Library
