“Gone In A Flash?” Personal Digital Archiving Workshop,Thursday, 9/13 @1pm

*This event is open to Columbia students, faculty, staff, and affiliates*

Personal Digital Archiving Workshop: Butler Library 523 on Thursday, September 13th at 1pm

The last thing you want to have happen when a new school year begins is to have to show up to class saying “the computer ate my homework” or to tell your friends that you can’t share that great photo you snapped while you were out on the town having fun because you can’t figure out where it ended up on your hard drive and it got deleted from your phone when you exported it.

So, how do you keep all those file names straight?  What happens to that paper when you save it on the library workstation?  Is there some easy way to back up your work?  To keep track of versions of photos as you crop and edit them?  And what about long-term preservation?

If managing your digital stuff leaves you feeling lost in the clouds then bring your lunch and your questions and join us in Butler Library 523 on Thursday, September 13th at 1pm. We promise a rapid-fire series of brief presentations from our panel of experts followed by an open Q&A.


*Refreshments will be served*
