This is the second webinar in a series exploring topics related to Digital Preservation.
Disk imaging is an important tool in the digital preservation toolkit. But what is a disk image, how do you make one, and why might it be useful at your institution? This webinar will break down the structure of a disk image, the types of images you can create, and other options for reformatting digital media. Participants will learn strategies for prioritizing media and identifying risks, as well as identify hardware and software tools that can help. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to create a basic disk imaging workflow for objects in their collections.
Annie Schweikert is a digital archivist at Stanford Libraries, where she processes, preserves, and makes accessible born-digital archival collections. She is a graduate of the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) program at New York University.
