The Library of Congress is doing a great job of developing best practices for digital preservation-both for individuals and libraries.
The National Digital Information Infrastructure Program (NDIIP) has a very good digital preservation site which focuses on a national strategy to collect, preserve and make available significant digital content, especially information that is created in digital form only, for current and future generations.
They have developed a number of resources, one of which is a monthly newsletter on digital preservation.
