As the centrality of personal digital archives and the ubiquity of digital content grows, librarians, archivists, scholars, students, activists, and those who fill the role of the "family IT person," have to deal with how to best select, preserve, and manage digital material. PDA 2017 seeks to host a discussion across domains focusing on how to best manage personal digital material, be it at a large institution or in a home office.
PDA 2017 will showcase both current and emerging scholarship on personal information management and personal digital archiving, as well as exciting and innovative projects and programs. Participants will include a wide-range of people and organizations.
The conference will consist of presentations, panel discussions, poster presentations and hands-on workshops.
