Abstract

Book information: "Scholars and scrapbookers alike need your help with saving their most important digital content.  But how do you translate your professional knowledge as a librarian or archivist into practical skills that novices can apply to their own projects? The Complete Guide to Personal Archiving will show you the way, helping you break down archival concepts and best practices into teachable solutions for your patrons’ projects. Whether it’s a researcher needing to cull their most important email correspondence, or an empty-nester transferring home movies and photographs to more easily shared and mixed digital formats, this book will show you how to offer assistance, providing explanations of common terms in plain language; quick, non-technical solutions . . . guidance on how to archive Facebook posts and other social media . . . and additional resources for digging deep into personal digital archiving."
