Hosting a Personal Digital Archiving Day Event
This webinar discusses how to host an innovative public program on preserving personal digital information.
In an effort to share knowledge on how best to care for personal digital information, The Library of Congress’ National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program developed The Personal Digital Archiving Day Kit. The toolkit provides resources for staff at libraries, archives and other cultural institutions to help them plan and present a personal digital archiving day program.
This webinar focuses on the resources included in the kit, how the kit can be used to plan a public program, and why holding a personal digital archiving program is beneficial for both public libraries and their communities.
Participants will acquire:
- practical tips for hosting a personal digital archiving day event.
- resources on digital preservation that can help individuals preserve their digital files, photos, videos, emails, and social media.
