  • Our user identifies the computer files to be processed.  These will be synchronized to the Stanford servers and automatically converted to PDF, tagged, and linked.  § 
  • Physical documents from the user's files may be digitized, processed, and included in the collection.  
  • The Self Archiving Legacy Toolkit is used to securely browse the tagged documents. The user may edit the tags and links. The software creates a graphical representation of the user's legacy in terms of concepts and context.
  • §The user decides which documents to make public and to which audience. The software helps identify copyright and privacy considerations.   
  • §Most valuable are the additional connections the user is inspired to contribute, such as with whom one worked with on what, when.  These assertions may be easily added, and these facts are then added to the knowledge representation.
