Copies of the 2019 edition of the Personal Digital Archiving Guide, originally published for World Digital Preservation Day, can now be found in Shapiro Library Design Lab's Design-o-Matic 4000 vending machine and in the Digital Preservation Lab in the Buhr Building.

Here's a quick glimpse at what's inside:

Part 1: Preservation Planning
Part 2: Media Types and File Formats
Part 3: Storage
