“Saving Our Stuff?” - From Research References to Family Pix: Effective Practices in Personal Digital Archiving for Faculty and Students

Date: April 17, 2015  
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group and others

Suffering from " rot, ...content drift, ...and reference rot... "?

What kinds of useful information can we find in the Internet and “Internet Archives”?  Can we find it again?  How can we confidently tell others how to find it … even days, months,years later?  Guidelines and tools for research, bibliographies, and citations.  [Retroactive advice for David Petraus & Hillary Clinton?]

How can internet archives (Wayback Machine, et al.) be used for research? For permanent(?) storage of personal, professional, or institutional work?

What are good options TODAY for protecting (long-term) personal and professional info?  For sustaining access to information produced as an employee of an organization - even when no longer affiliated with the organization?  Even when the organization dies?

We'll describe, discuss, and demonstrate guidelines and tools to help students and faculty use the Wayback Machine, other internet archives, Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs), and related resources to find, retrieve​, save, share,​ and cite​ online information for their research and instructional activities - legally, effectively, and respectfully.​

For example, is there an MLA format recommended for citing URLs for referenced information from the Wayback Machine?  Embed code available to accompany Flickr images that provides correct citation info!  Using DIIGO to store media plus citation info for later usage and attribution and sharing!


This session is a response to requests for follow-up from participants in our March FridayLive! discussion of 2 articles about the  "Wayback Machine" (Internet Archive and other archival resources.
