Personal Digital Archiving” at METRO (New York, NY)

Today more and more of our lives are becoming digital; everything from family photos to medical records are now available in electronic form. While this makes access quick and convenient, most of us have also experienced personal data loss due to hard drive failure, file corruption, technology obsolescence, or accidental file deletion. What should we be doing to safeguard our digital creations? On December 15th, join us for “Personal Digital Archiving” at METRO and get some answers. During this hands-on session, instructor Ellyssa Kroski will explain the process of creating and executing an action plan for archiving personal digital assets, deciding what to store, consolidating multiple file versions, and cataloging resources. We will explore both local storage media and cloud services as well as institutional and disciplinary repositories.

Registration fees: $35 members; $35 myMETRO; $60 non-members
