Personal Archiving Class Slide Decks
Here you will find the most up-to-date versions of our personal archiving and preservation classes as Google Slides, with detailed notes and tips. Please make a copy, remix, and repurpose for your community.
A zine is a non-commercial, often handmade, publication intended for small circulation. Here we have compiled links to several zines on personal archiving topics. You can then print, fold, staple, and hand out these zines at your Memory Lab related classes and events.
Tutorials and Webinars
The project resulted in several instructional videos showing the how's and why's of running a Memory Lab, along with recorded webinars for professional development and further mentoring of our partners. All of these videos can be found on the project's Youtube page. Topics include: How to Evaluate Your AV Deck, How to Repair a Broken VHS Tape, Disaster Preparedness and Planning, and much more!
