Preserving your Personal Digital Collections


Most of us have old photos of our parents or even grandparents but in this digital world how can we be sure that our digital photos will still be accessible by our children and grandchildren? This session will address how to preserve personal and family memories in digital form.

The session will be relevant for people who want to preserve their personal digital collections but also those interested in preserving the digital content from societies or clubs they are involved with, for example local societies or sports clubs.



This presentation will cover:

  • Identifying where your photos and other files are currently kept
  • Deciding what to keep and preserve
  • Organising your ‘archive’
  • Storage and backup
  • Managing your ‘archive’ over time


Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • Digital preservation
  • Data management
  • File organisation
  • File formats
  • Backup strategies
