Over the last year a team at the University of Edinburgh have been undertaking a project on the impact of personal tracks and traces online.
The "Managing Your Digital Footprint" campaign aimed to raise awareness as well as support students to make informed choices to manage and reflect pon the tracks and traces that they leave online. A parallel research project has also been investigating students understanding, experience and attitudes towards their own digital footprints and online presences.

Here we will discuss the project and highlight some of the most relevant initial findings and recommendations for information professionals.
