The Personal Digital Archiving website has a multitude of tips for archiving your own personal collection, including downloadable guides on how to scan your collection and tips for the best digital media for storing your collection.
I especially liked the idea of having a Personal Digital Archiving Day, an event held to help others archive and share archiving tips. What a great idea for a local library, historical society or even a family to help gather collections.
The site also gives specific arching tips for popular materials: digital photographs, audio, video, e-mail and websites.
Perhaps some of these tips will motivate us all to archive our collection.
