Just in case you don’t follow the other channels in which I’ve been talking it up, Files that Last, my new e-book on digital preservation for “everygeek,” is now out. It covers issues of backup, archiving, file formats, and long-term planning. Right now it’s available from Smashwords, Kobo, and the iTunes Store. It hasn’t shown up on Amazon yet, but I expect it will soon.
I’m not exactly impartial on this, but I think you’ll find it a valuable resource for preservation planning on the personal level and for large and small organizations.
