How do we choose to document and share information about ourselves, our activities, and our communities? What happens to all of the data people create over their lifetimes? How can an information professional or researcher make sense of the various digital strands, remnants, and data that comprise a 21st century life?

Stanford University Libraries is thrilled to be hosting Personal Digital Archiving (PDA) from March 29-31, 2017. PDA 2017 will focus on current and emerging trends and scholarship in personal information management and personal digital archiving. The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, November 25.
