Do you create important documents on your laptop? Use cloud storage? Save your research on a hard drive? Take digital photos? Have lots of older files you’ve lost control of? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, welcome to the wonderful world of personal digital archives. This is a session for you!
To celebrate International Digital Preservation Day, let’s take a look at the digital archives we all create. Flora Feltham, the Alexander Turnbull Library’s Digital Archivist, will give you practical advice on how to manage your digital files and media. Learn the basics about the care and handling of physical media like CDs and hard drives, as well as good practice in file naming, file organisation and back-ups.
