Description

Sponsored by Dinsmore Private Client and Family Wealth Planning.

Family memories once created on physical formats like diaries, letters, and photographs are now increasingly created digitally. How do you make digital photos, important electronic documents, and videos on your phone accessible in the future? These digital materials are more fragile than we may realize. Join Associate Curator of Digital Projects Danielle Spalenka for some tips to get started on preserving digital family collections and your digital memories.

Danielle Spalenka is the Associate Curator of Digital Projects at The Filson Historical Society where she provides vision and leadership for the Filson’s digitization and digital preservation projects. Prior to joining The Filson staff in April 2019, Ms. Spalenka held the role of Preservation Specialist at the Northeast Document Conservation Center and served as the Project Director for the Digital POWRR Project. She holds a BA in history from Saint Mary’s College (Notre Dame, IN) and a MA-LIS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
