Materials Pertinent to Digital Archaeology:
Collaborative Electronic Records Project: Evaluation of Tools: http://siarchives.si.edu/cerp/RAC_SIA_CERP_tools_V2.pdf
Representation and Rendering Project, University of Leeds. "Survey and assessment of sources of information on file formats and software documentation." This review of file format repositories will be of help if you are dealing with strange file formats or are formulating a recommendation for long-term tracking of file-format expertise. Available at: http://www.jisc.ac.uk/uploaded_documents/FileFormatsreport.pdf
Several significant resources for digital preservation exist online and should be actively used.
NEW Chris Lacinak, "A Primer on Codecs for Moving Image and Sound Archives," just released: AVPS_Codec_Primer.pdf
NEW The Digital Curation Center's latest report on the state of the art in Web Archiving has just been published: http://dcc.ac.uk/sites/default/files/documents/reports/sarwa-v1.1.pdf
The Preserving Access to Digital Information (PADI) site (http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/), maintained by the National Library of Australia, is indispensable and its cooperative notion of "Safekeeping" is worth study in itself.
There is also now a German preservation site that goes under the name of the Nestor project (English version: http://www.langzeitarchivierung.de/index.php?newlang=eng); they are cooperating with PADI but have additional materials for Germany.
The British National Archives PRONOM file-format registry site is available at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/pronom/ It includes a collection of useful tools from all over the planet for extracting metadata, detecting file formats, etc.
Anne Marie Donovan, Maria Esteva, Addy Sonder, and Sue Trombley,
"Proposal for Establishment of a DSpace Digital Repository at the School of Information, University of Texas at Austin," final report for 2003 INF 392K class, focus on archiving the iSchool website and appraisal decisions made.
Carlos Ovalle has provided this link to the UT ITS document on what they refer to as "data classification" (for "sensitivity"/security considerations) :
In 2004 Galloway wrote this overview of digital object preservation:
Here is a useful PPT outline of the basics of OAIS and the state of adoption and development in 2004, By Michael Day, University of Bath: http://www.csdl.ac.cn/meeting/cedp/archives/Michael%20Day%20day-slides-beijing-oais.pdf
You may also want to check the contents of several online publications regularly, as they tend to carry useful articles on developments in digital preservation (and they also should be venues in which you aspire to publish)--some have listservs and increasingly there are RSS feeds available:
Journal of Digital Information (JoDI): http://journals.tdl.org/jodi
RLG DigiNews: moved in the OCLC merger, but if you have a citation to track down or want to browse, see: http://www.oclc.org/programs/publications/newsletters/diginews.htm
First Monday: http://www.firstmonday.org/index.html
E-Reserve, online readings for class
Richard Pearce-Moses, A Glossary of Archival and Records Terminology, is on the SAA website in draft form: http://www.archivists.org/glossary/index.asp
Project-oriented resources (note: if you find useful resources, please let me know so they can be included here):

Library of Congress information on digital audio formats: http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/formats/intro/intro.shtml
National Archives information on audio file formats (such as it is): http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/initiatives/dav-faq.html
