  • Zoe Waldron, The New York Public Library
  • Jason Miller, University of California, Berkeley
  • Molly Tighe, The Mattress Factory Museum

In this session, four visual resources professionals will discuss how they are making an impact in the realm of personal digital archiving in the arts and humanities. Some of the questions to be addressed: How much, and what kind of attention should we give to the ever-growing area of personal digital archives? How can we best support artists, photographers, families, and communities in creating, managing, and preserving their digital archives? How can we assist faculty members in managing their large archives of artwork and scholarship?  How can we advocate for the long-term access, preservation, and stewardship of individual digital collections? How do we handle large acquired image collections? What kinds of cross-institutional projects are most effective, and how do we get those going?

Sponsored in part by the Greater New York Chapter.
