Digital Preservation

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of digital preservation. It will empower those without a background in computers or coding to feel confident doing digital preservation in archives!

The presentation will help identify different storage media encountered in archival collections as well as introduce digital forensics tools to help with data integrity and authenticity. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to experiment with Library of Congress’s Bagger software to demonstrate how you might transfer files safely off hardware and generate metadata while you do it!
