Personal digital archiving is a corollary of interacting with digital content making it a crucial issue in today’s information society. In this paper, this issue is observed from the point of view of the students of information sciences, who are at the forefront of the development of information society. The purpose of this research, conducted in three Croatian universities offering courses in information science, is to establish how aware the students of information science are of the importance of this issue, to determine the digital archiving practices they employ and to examine what other factors influence this activity (such as education level and gender).
