An engaging resource written for anyone interested in learning how to save their personal digital information. The digital era has reshaped the nature, scope, and use of personal information. People collect and store an ever-increasing volume of digital personal information on co...nvenient portable devices and create substantial amounts of personal textual and visual digital information on their personal computers. Computer users have become accustomed to using a variety of tools that involve their interactive social activities. Because of social media, there is a large amount of user-generated content related to peoples' lives and there is no way for creators to save it all. This phenomenon may thus result in a massive gap in our current history because invaluable information may be lost.

This book analyzes the concepts associated with preserving and managing personal digital information. This book will be a resource for everyone interested in learning how to manage and preserve their personal digital lives. Furthermore, the contents provide visual and textual examples that will illustrate how to use best practices to ensure the longevity of information, while considering current solutions to the problems associated with personal information loss. The book is a detailed visual and textual guide to our PIM processes covering the following key areas for information and images of all kinds: *Receiving *Generating *Keeping *Using *Organizing *Re-finding *Sharing.
