Memory Lab: Preserve and Play — Collaboration with the DC Public Library

We are delighted to have a DC Public Library team join us to help teach us how to preserve our own personal archives (how to archive, best practices, principles of digital archiving, a step-by-step guide to personal archiving) and digital preservation (scanning/digitizing documents, photos, and slides).

To start off the process, bring a few images (3) or documents, that you would like archived. Bring a flash drive if you have one.

Sign up below. The first 15 people will be admitted. Others will be put on the waiting list. We will let you know if you are admitted to the class or on the waiting list a week before the class. If the program is popular, it will be repeated.

These workshops will be held in the Meyer Room at Iona Senior Services, 4125 Albemarle St. NW. Iona is one block west of the Tenleytown Metro stop on the Red line. There is street parking and some parking available underneath the building on 42nd Street.

Our two sessions will be:

Tuesday, July 30 from 3:00-5:00 pm (CLOSED)

Tuesday, August 27 from 3:00-5:00 pm
This form does not exist

Please email if you are interested in participating in a subsequent workshop.
