Preserving Your Personal Digital Photographs

ALCTS webinar

Date: April 26, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: Digital photos are fragile and require special care to keep them accessible. But preserving any kind of digital information is a new concept that most people have little experience with. Technologies change over time and become obsolete, making it difficult to access older digital photos. And since digital photography results in immediate personal memories, we take and collect an enormous amount of photos. But as our personal collections grow, it becomes more and more difficult to save those photos and to find specific photos. If your digital photos are difficult for you to manage, how will your loved ones be able to make sense of them in the future? Learn about the nature of the problem and hear about some simple, practical tips and tools to help you keep your digital photos safe.
Learning Outcomes:
1. the nature of the problem
2. simple practical tips to describe and save digital photos
3. tools that can be used

Audience: Anyone with an interest in preserving personal digital photos and other digital information.
