Course Details

February 21st and 22nd, 2013
University of Maryland, College Park

The Personal Digital Archiving conference will provide a two-day-long opportunity for researchers and practitioners in the field of personal archiving to convene for presentations and networking. The conference supports a broad community of practitioners working to ensure long term access for various personal collections and archives. The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland and the National Digital Information Infrastructure Program at the Library of Congress will co-host the conference in conjunction with the University of Maryland Libraries.

Bringing Personal Digital Archiving 2013 to the Washington, D.C. region has great potential to expand and enrich the interactions of conference participants by drawing individual attendees not just from the strong community that has developed over the past three years but also from the academic community and cultural heritage institutions located in the national capitol region.

Presentations, photos, and other materials from previous Personal Digital Archiving conferences can be found at The Internet Archive.
