Digital Remains: The technological traces we leave behind

Do you ever wonder what happens to our personal digital content when we die? This resource explores the many issues arising from digital identity and content, and how it might be accessed by the bereaved. This RLO is an output of a research project led in Nottingham by Morna O Connor about death, dying and bereavement and the role of technology in health.
