Many of us now document our lives digitally. As these collections
grow, so do the challenges involved in their management,
preservation and use. Creators must actively manage their files, and
collecting institutions must adapt their processes to accommodate
personal digital materials.
This conference focuses on many topics relevant to personal digital
archiving. It will provide information useful for libraries, archives
and museums, as well as individuals, community groups, activist groups
and others interested in personal digital collections.
PDA 2015 will feature two full days of presentations
focused on a set of themes and a third day for workshops
covering useful tools and methods.
This year’s Personal Digital Archiving conference is hosted by NYU’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) program, in collaboration with NYU Libraries and Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).
PDA 2015 is also affiliated with Born-Digital Workflows CURATEcamp 2015, which will take place April 23 at Brooklyn Historical Society.
