Archivists aren’t all about paper! This year, Archives Month went digital in the TriCollege Consortium of Swarthmore, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr. At three workshops on personal digital archiving, attendees learned best practices for managing digital files, discussed some of the specific challenges around digital preservation, and played a mystery game exploring the digital archives of a fictional spy!
