After reading this short primer, readers will be ready to better organize and identify what they already have in digital form; have a personal plan for knowing what to discard and what to retain; know how to digitize papers, photographs, and voicemail; preserve email and social media postings; and set up a workable long-term file-naming and organizational structure.
