A PIM Perspective: Leveraging Personal Information Management Research in the Archiving of Personal Digital Records

Title

A PIM Perspective: Leveraging Personal Information Management Research in the Archiving of Personal Digital Records

Subject

Personal Archives

Description

This paper specifically examines personal digital record-keeping strategies, appraisal decisions, and identifications of value, as well as digital preservation practices from the perspective of Personal Information Management (PIM) studies. Through explorations of how people create, collect, organize, maintain, and (re)access digital information, PIM research complements our existing knowledge about personal digital records and reveals additional information about these materials heretofore undisclosed by archival scholarship. This paper suggests that a genuine understanding of the processes of records mediation in personal digital archives is integral to the discovery and exploitation of their requisite provenancial information.
