In the early days of computing, we used a phrase, “save early, save often.” Today’s digital content creators have more opportunities and more ways to save, but often forget this critical step.
To keep content from being lost forever, our students and faculty need to learn best practices.
I’m proud that our librarians, Ed McCain and Dorothy Carner, are launching an easy set of steps for digital storage. JAM — Journalism Archives Management — will set students and faculty on a path to preserving content long after it has been created.
