Join us when Dorothea Salo, Distinguished Faculty Associate in the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Information School discusses “Saving Your Digital Stuff: Personal and Family History,” Dorothea reminds us, “If you are like many Wisconsinites, your family history is gradually moving from analog (photographs, letters, keepsakes) to digital (websites, social-media accounts, files in the cloud). Learn how to ensure your family’s digital history doesn’t disappear in a cloud of pixels!"

Her "Recover Analog and Digital Data" (RADD) project rescues audio, video, and digital data from obsolete or decaying carriers. In order to make the technology shareable, she has also developed PROUD (Portable Recovery of Unique Data) and PRAVDA (Portably Reformat Audio and Video to Digital from Analog).

As co-investigator for the Institute for Museum and Library Services-funded Data Doubles project, she is helping investigate undergraduate students' perceptions of privacy relative to learning analytics practices. Salo holds an MA in Library and Information Studies and another in Spanish from UW-Madison.
