Speaker Melody Karle, MLS

Resource Description and Management Coordinator at University of Houston Libraries (Houston, TX)


Information professionals regularly manage large amounts of information and files in multiple formats...that’s at work. But how are their files at home? The tools, time needed, and technological demands of managing personal digital files are different from managing archives for an organization. Learn tips for managing your own files, find out about personal digital archiving tools, and consider how personal and professional file management overlap in this live 1-hour webinar.
