GSAS Teaching Center Workshop: Save Yourself! Strategies for Making a Personal Digital Archive

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus 204 Butler Library
These days everyone has a story of the file that went missing -- whether its a photo that didnt make it from your phone onto your computer, or data youve been working on for the last six months. So how do you keep all those file names straight? What happens to those data when you save them? Is there some easy way to back up your work? To keep track of versions of photos as you crop and edit them? And what about long-term preservation? If managing your own digital stuff or making file management recommendations to students leaves you feeling lost in the clouds, bring your questions and get a grounding in basic personal digital archiving. Pizza will be available to registered participants.
