The quality of archive preservation and the techniques of paper conservation have improved enormously over the past twenty years, emphasising minimal intervention and harnessing technology, rather than chemicals, in efforts to prolong the life of fragile materials. The broader remit of preservation has developed, aiding the work of conservators and bringing the importance of holistic care to the attention of archives and libraries. The importance of trumpeting the ways in which preservation supports access to information, of developing partnerships and international co-operation and of management skills are paramount in raising awareness of the need for archive preservation.
