How can I digitize archival documents, journals and books? Where can I find those already digitized? What is the best way to manage my electronic archive collection? How do I share my electronic archive? In short, how can I be a good digital archivist and librarian? How can I best use digital documents and publications in my research? How can I create a bibliography and aggregate citations?

If you have these and similar practical concerns, we invite you to the workshop “A Digital Archive of My Own”. We’ll demonstrate the process of digitizing, creating and sharing of a digital collection, and help you to organize your research process with digital documents and archives. Bring your own computer and, if you use one, an e-book reader. You’re advised to install beforehand the following free software tools: Calibre and Zotero.
