Personal Digital Archiving: Issues for Libraries and a Summary of the PDA Conference
BESSER, Howard (2015) Personal Digital Archiving: Issues for Libraries and a Summary of the PDA Conference. Paper presented at: IFLA WLIC 2015 - Cape Town, South Africa in Session 197 - Audiovisual and Multimedia with Acquisition and Collection Development.
Personal Digital Archiving: Issues for Libraries and a Summary of the PDA ConferenceLibraries pride themselves on their Special Collections – the unique sets of photographs, correspondence, diaries, home movies, and other documents that reside in only one library. Most Special Collection material comes from individuals or organizations, and today almost all of this material is born-digital. But there are not (as yet) well-established methods for ingesting and managing this type of material. This paper explores the emerging field of Personal Digital Archiving (PDA) which seeks to explore methods for organizing and managing born-digital personal collections of photos, email, calendars, diaries, and other documents. The paper reports back from the Spring 2015 PDA Conference on topics and tools likely to be of interest to Special Collections Librarians.
