Preservation means many things to many people. Ask any group of librarians to name the issues surrounding preservation today and you will get many different answers. One might talk about the need to preserve print and archival materials through digitization, microfilming, or binding. Another might be concerned with the preservation of digital materials, the fear of changing technology, data degradation, and the vagaries of the commercial publishing world. A third might welcome the use of institutional repositories as a means to preserve, organize, and publicize material produced by an institution. Someone among the group is bound to raise the issue of continued access to materials when subscriptions are cancelled.
