Preserve it or Lose it! Preserving your personal pictures and documents

Have a shoebox of photographs tucked away in the closet? Years of pics jamming up your phone? Just in time for Preservation Week two experts from the University of Michigan Library Department of Preservation and Conservation will discuss the fundamentals of preserving personal documents and images. They will present basic strategies for preserving both physical items and digital files and include tips for how to digitize physical documents to share and keep. There will be an extended question time for participants to ask about preserving their own documents. 

Presenters: Scott Witmer is a digital preservation specialist in the Digital Preservation unit at the University of Michigan Library

Shannon Zachary is head of the Department of Preservation & Conservation at the University of Michigan Library
