Have you ever had a file crash or become unreadable? Have you ever lost published content when an online magazine you worked for went bust? If so, you've learned a hard truth about digital information: it's easy to copy and easy to share, but it can be frustratingly hard to save. Digital files become corrupted; storage media become obsolete. Tight budgets at most publications mean that there are few resources to allocate towards formal preservation programs. Yet all the work journalists produce on a daily basis--from our reporting to our finished articles--continues to be valuable long after deadline and should be saved. Personal Digital Archiving is a hot topic in the world of libraries and archives, and is especially relevant to journalists. Libraries are less and less repositories of information and more and more centers of digital literacy that help educate individuals on preserving their own digital legacies. In this webinar (led by a journalist who is also a trained librarian and archivist), attendees will learn best practices for organizing and storing articles, emails, texts, photos, audio files, and videos so that all can be found and accessed for years to come. If you've ever lost digital information that you've wanted to save, this free webinar is for you.
