Can I Find it Again?: Difficulties First Year Students Face When Managing Their Digital Stuff

As we collect and produce a variety of digital materials, organizing and self-archiving them becomes a growing challenge. To better understand how the University Library can support these needs, we asked 500 first-year students during Welcome Week 2012 how they perceive their personal digital needs. They revealed concern about managing music, photos, digital notes, e-books and videos.

The survey results will help inform resources for managing a person's digital life, including photos, music, video, e-mail, digital notes, and e-books. The group plans to address the needs of the entire University community, in addition to first-year students, by building online resources and providing outreach/in-person opportunities for members of the University community to better enable them to manage personal collections that are growing in size and complexity.

Our University president has called on us to consider ways we can enhance our operational excellence by saving time and money while adding efficiency on all levels. This poster will present ways that we can add to people's personal efficiency by guiding them to both tools and practices to assist in organizing their digital lives.
