Digital file formats
How many different file formats exist for digital information?
It is a jungle out there. Some formats are extinct, many are alive, and many are evolving.
The Library of Congress Digital Formats website has a comprehensive catalogue with descriptions of old and new file formats. The information is provided to help librarians and archivists manage digital collections. Look for their Format Descriptions tab.
