Preservation Section

The Preservation Section of the Society of American Archivists promotes the preservation of archives and manuscript collections managed by collecting repositories, including government, academic and cultural heritage institutions, in the United States. Our mission is to raise awareness of and disseminate information about the preservation of archival materials regardless of format. The Section offers access to its resources to the membership of the Preservation Section, the membership of the Society of American Archivists, and to anyone interested in preservation.
