Preserving Your Digital Life: Webinar (11/13/14) 

This webinar will offer guidance and strategies for preserving  your digital life.  Most of us have looked through a family scrapbook, or perhaps perused an author's papers in an archive.  Today,  your digital files are your scrapbooks and personal collections.  Emails, photos, videos, and even text messages all help document our lives, our work, and our families and friends.  These digital assets represent a significant investment in both time and resources, and are often more fragile than we realize.

Who should attend?

This introductory webinar is designed for those with no previous training in this subject.  It is suitable for all library staff.  Creative professionals managing digital content and caretakers of digital collections are encouraged to attend.

Virtual Trainer: Frances Harrell, Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) Preservation Specialist

Frances Harrell conducts general preservation needs assessments and  represents NEDCC on the COSTEP MA Executive Committee. She has a strong interest in disaster planning and emergency response and recovery, as well as the preservation planning challenges facing smaller collecting institutions. She received an MLIS from Simmons College GSLIS and a BA in English Literature from the University of Florida, and has worked in both development and collections management.
