Introduction to Preserving Records. Preservation is a crucial element in the whole operation of a records programme. The aim of archival preservation is to prolong the usable life of useful research information in two ways. First, preventive preservation seeks to reduce risks of damage and to slow down the rate of deterioration. permanent preservation. The archives staff ensure records are received, processed according to archival standards, physically housed and protected and made available for public use.

Position bookcases so that sunlight does not fall on books you want to preserve. Preservation-quality boxes for individual volumes will protect books from excess light exposure and keep pieces of damaged bindings together, such as detached or loose covers. However, machine readable records require a proactive response from their custodians to ensure the long-term preservation of information. For more information on preserving machine readable records, phone to contact the Conservator at the Georgia Department of Archives and History, a division of the Office of Secretary of State. Records are not synonymous with archives. While an archives collects records, not all records merit ongoing preservation. 'Record' connotes documents, rather than artifacts or published materials, although collections of records may contain artifacts and books.
