Personal Digital Archiving: A Train the Trainer Webinar

Wednesday, October 22nd
11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central | 2pm Eastern
60 minutes


The Society of Georgia Archivists, the Atlanta chapter of ARMA International,
and the Georgia Library Association present a train-the-trainer session on
Personal Digital Archiving. Designed for information professionals from all
backgrounds and levels of experience, this session will empower participants to
see themselves as archivists of their own digital records and will cover topics
ranging from best practices for creating digital records and rights issues in
the digital landscape to strategies for storing digital records and emerging
developments regarding the digital afterlife. After completing the workshop,
attendees will be encouraged to teach the workshop to their users–the public,
co-workers, students, etc.–in their own diverse institutional contexts. The
end goal of the workshop will thus be to advocate for informational
professionals as a source of expertise for assisting individuals (the public,
family members, students, corporate employees, etc.) with their personal
digital archiving needs.

Oscar Gittemeier currently works as a Youth Services Librarian with the
Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System (AFPLS) at the East Atlanta Branch. He has
a background in Sociology and Women’s Studies and completed his MLIS with
Florida State University in August 2012. Oscar has served on several GLA
committees, including AEL, NMRT, and PACE, but making the Libraries Are Such a
Drag fundraising calendar for the Scholarship Committee was the most fun! In
his free time Oscar enjoys sipping Bulleit Bourbon with a good book on his back
deck and connecting with radical librarians who are reimagining the profession.
