A USB drive found at the scene of a murder contains someone’s personal digital files, revealing clues about the crime and the identity of the victim. It’s up to you to review the contents of the drive and help solve the mystery!

Personal digital archiving is about taking ownership of your digital life. Our lives are increasingly conducted online, through social media, email, in software applications, websites, and blogs. How do we ensure that our digital possessions continue to be accessible and are kept safe from disaster, human error, and obsolete technologies? Join LITS staff members, Allison Mills (College Archivist) and Natalie Shilstut (Digital Collections and Metadata Librarian) who will guide you through a hands-on murder mystery game and share best practices for managing your own personal digital archives.
