*About the Webinar*

We began offering digital information several decades ago. Today, some of
that information has been lost because of the way it was saved. One of the
major issues with digital information is creating and preserving it in ways
that ensure its availability for generations to come. Unfortunately, this
has not always been the case, and there are vast amounts of data that have
been preserved but in ways that are no longer readable. This webinar will
discuss old technology and the data that is imprisoned on it, and how to
set this data free, e.g., how to convert it into formats that render it
useful not just to us, but to future researchers.
