As the quintessential personal digital archive, Facebook no longer requires an introduction; its user-base is currently estimated at one billion active monthly profiles, give or take a few fake accounts. On the front end, its the epitome of the user-generated content platform and of the postmodern living archive. Its underbelly, however, remains much less explored and theorized (Miller, 2006; Bennet 2010). Academic research on Facebook has instead addressed: urgent policy, privacy, and...

The archival community struggles to fit in the private process of personal digital archiving. A common recommendation is to begin preservation far upstream, introducing archival practices early into the act of personal collection. But what may the archives best intentions introduce into the act of personal collection? Entering too early into the process may place undue influence on the decisions of the collector, the what gets kept and why? Active preservation of digital personal archives is...

This paper explores how local and family history services in public libraries overlap with personal digital archiving. The theory used to connect these two domains come from Folklore studies, particularly Barbara Kirschenblatt-Gimbletts work on indigenous modes of life review, which she defines as the social construction of the self through time and the transformation of experience through materials readily at hand. This theory helps us understand how individuals use materials and resources...

During my research about personal digital archiving practices, I asked participants if they would be willing at the end of their lives or after they die for their personal digital collections to be donated to memory institutions, such as local historical societies or collecting archives. The donation of personal documents to memory institutions is slightly different from leaving behind personal digital collections for family members or close friends. First, the donated documents become objects...

Born-digital materials are vulnerable. They can be damaged by environmental factors, internal corruption, and human hands. The creators, dealers, family members, and other custodians handling disks and computers destined for an archival repository may be uncomfortable with technology, uncertain about the value of digital files, and unsure of how to protect digital materials from harm during shipping. With these concerns in mind, ten archivists and special collections curators from the Beinecke,...

Archivists have an opportunity to inform the actions of individuals around preserving their personal collections; however, they risk losing this opportunity because the collections of ordinary citizens are broader than the traditional conceptualization of archival content. I argue for the extension of the concept of personal archiving to include what I call personal artifacting, which reflects the fact that these ordinary citizens do not distinguish between documents and three-dimensional...
