Please join us for the upcoming free webinar by Lisa Snider, Archivist at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, on "Email, Social Media and Website Archiving for Beginners: An Archival View for Librarians" at 10am (Central) on April 9th, 2015.

Recording available: http://ala.adobeconnect.com/p2zgji1wt3b/

Speaker: Lisa Snider is currently the Archivist at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.  She has an MAS and MLIS from the University of British Columbia.  Lisa has worked as a Digital Archivist since 2010, and was a web developer from 1996-2013.  Her first ACRL Digital Curation Interest Group webinar, "Digital Curation for Beginners", was given in March 2014. 

Description: Never archived something web based?  If you have thought about it, need to do it or just thought 'geez who does that work?', then this webinar is for you.  Lisa Snider has designed this webinar for beginners, and uses analogies and plain language to explain the process of archiving web based materials. She will talk about what to consider before archiving, software and techniques for archiving and how access impacts preservation.  The webinar is taught from an archival point of view, but easily translates to libraries.
