Personal Archiving 101-Preserving Digital Memories

December 11 , 6:30 pm

Learn how to turn your digital memories (photos, documents, videos, etc.) into a well-organized, enduring personal archive:

VHS? Floppy disks? Vacation photographs? Everyone has digital materials that hold personal meaning and tell stories about their lives. Join archivist Maggie Schreiner for a personal digital archiving workshop and learn how to care for and preserve your digital memories! Master the basics of digitizing and caring for your collections of documents, photos, and audiovisual materials. Learn about file formats and storage, straightforward tools and techniques, and common risks and dangers (and how to avoid them!).

About the Speaker: Maggie Schreiner is the Manager of Archives and Special Collections at the Brooklyn Historical Society. She has previously held positions at New York University and the Queens Memory program at Queens Library, where she first began teaching about personal digital archiving. Maggie holds an MA in Archives and Public History from New York University.

An ASL interpreter may be made available if requested in advance.
