The Personal Digital Archiving 2015 Conference | The Signal

The annual Personal Digital Archiving conference is about preserving any digital collection that falls outside the purview of large cultural institutions. Considering the expanding range of interests at each subsequent PDA conference, the meaning of the word “personal” has become thinly stretched to cover topics such as family history, community history, genealogy and digital humanities.

Curation of born-digital materials begins at home | hangingtogether.org

As is the case with most archivists dealing with born-digital stuff, the challenge is that you can’t just look at the stuff to assess its value. Just to look at the file directory, you basically have to rescue it first and then decide if it was worth it.

Introduction

Personal Digital Archiving Conference 2015

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.

Re-inventing the scholarly record: taking inspiration from Renaissance Florence

On February 11th, we presented the Evolving Scholarly Record (ESR) Framework at the EMEA Regional Council annual meeting, in Florence.

Decentralised and inviolate: the blockchain and its uses for digital archives | Recordkeeping Roundtable

In the flow of information all around us – in businesses, governments, personal spaces, in the physical and online world, there is information that we want to fix at a point in time and give it an identifier that we know we can use to find it again. That is, be kept in a way so that it remains not only identifiable with a meaningful name, but also so it is inviolate and trustworthy over time. The information might be born digital (emails, datasets, web pages, tweets, PDF documents), digitised copies of physical formats (books, paper documents) or still in physical form only.
