Imagine your digital existence as a library. With rows upon rows of virtual shelving housing your valued photos, videos, documents, website content, blogs, and much more.

This is an online-only event hosted on the British Library platform. Bookers are sent a viewing link shortly before the event and are able to watch at any time for 48 hours after the start time.

Imagine your digital existence as a library. With rows upon rows of virtual shelving housing your valued photos, videos, documents, website content, blogs, and much more. Without meaning to, you’ve found yourself as the custodian of a seemingly infinite amount of digital content – so what can you do?

The British Library and others share lessons from their expertise in managing diverse digital collections, suggesting ways in which you can manage your personal digital collections and web-based content in an age of corporate giants, social media, and data clouds.

Tune into the conversation chaired by Michael Day, Digital Preservation Research Lead at the British Library, featuring Nicola Bingham from the UK Web Archive and Trevor Owens from the Library of Congress in Washington DC, amongst others.

This event is part of Leeds Digital Festival.
