As the centrality of personal digital archives and the ubiquity of digital content grows, librarians, archivists, scholars, students, activists, and those who fill the role of the "family IT person," have to deal with how to best select, preserve, and manage digital material. PDA 2017 seeks to host a discussion across domains focusing on how to best manage personal digital material, be it at a large institution or in a home office.
PDA 2017 will showcase both current and emerging scholarship on personal information management and personal digital archiving, as well as exciting and innovative projects and programs. Participants will include a wide-range of people and organizations. 
The conference will consist of presentations, panel discussions, poster presentations and hands-on workshops. 

  • Reception will be held from 5:00-7:00 on second floor terrace, Lathrop on March 29th.
  • Workshops will be held in Lathrop 290, 292, 294, 296, and 299 on March 31st.

The deadline for submissions is 24 November 2016. All submissions will be reviewed by the PDA17 Program Committee and submitters will be notified by winter break. For more information, please see PDA2017 website under More Info.
