Personal Digital Archiving Day Kit
Host your own Personal Archiving Day
Guidance and resources for information professionals on how to organize and host your own Personal Digital Archiving Day
We've developed a Kit of resources to help you host your own Personal Digital Archiving Day events and to share knowledge on how best to care for personal digital information. We've organized the planning process into two phases.
Here you'll find a list of personal digital archiving resources for your event. Based on the focus of your program, you may choose to use all of them or only some of them.
