Born Digital Resources: Working with Trainees, Donors and Peers

Born Digital Resources: Working with Trainees, Donors and Peers

This presentation focuses on a) resources I've used to educate and train students working with born-digital media in an archival setting, b) resources I’ve used to promote born-digital media preservation, and c) my experiences working with donors of born-digital media in identifying potential archive materials and in transferring those materials. Presented at SAA 2014.
