Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
VHS? Floppy disks? Vacation photographs? Everyone has digital materials that hold personal meaning and tell stories about their lives. Join archivist Maggie Schreiner for a personal digital archiving workshop and learn how to care for and preserve your digital memories! Master the basics of digitizing and caring for your collections of documents, photos, and audiovisual materials. Learn about file formats and storage, straightforward tools and techniques, and common risks and dangers (and how to avoid them!).

She has previously held positions at New York University and the Queens Memory program at Queens Library, where she first began teaching about personal digital archiving. Maggie holds an MA in Archives and Public History from New York University.
