RE-Nat Digital Infrastructures - Research

Dr. Edward Benoit, III, faculty in The School of Library & Information Science at Louisiana State University, will research best practices and protocols to help archivists assist veterans and active duty personnel in preserving their personal digital archives. Contemporary soldiers no longer create and maintain an analog personal archive as they did in the past. The shift towards digital technologies over the past twenty years has created a critical future gap in the record. This Early Career development project will develop a user-centered framework to create best practice digital preservation protocols for assisting veterans with preserving their personal records.
