Join us for Personal Digital Archiving 2019!

The University of Pittsburgh is pleased to host the Personal Digital Archiving conference, to be held in Pittsburgh, PA from May 2-4, 2019.

Personal Digital Archiving is an annual conference dedicated to the exploration of issues related to individual and community records in all digital forms. It is interdisciplinary and inclusive in nature, welcoming discussion between information professionals, academics, artists, and all individuals and community groups engaged in this area. We encourage an expansive, creative, and inclusive interpretation of “personal digital archives” at this conference.
