free preservation workshop: personal archiving + dc1968
This Saturday at 2pm, at the Mount Pleasant Library, 3160 16th Street, NW, DCPL librarian Jamila Felton and I are collaborating on a free preservation workshop, Personal Archiving + dc1968.
Jamila will provide a hands-on tutorial showing participants how to preserve photographs and documents, both physically and digitally. There will be a high-end scanner and thumb drives for participants to scan and save their material
I will share my project, show some of the photographs, ephemera and objects that I have collected, and invite participants to contribute to the dc1968 project. Bring in your 1968 material to show and digitize!

There will be a second workshop on Tuesday 18 July at 6:30pm, at Mount Pleasant Library.
