In library and archival science , preservation is a set of activities aimed at prolonging the life of a record, book, or object while making as few changes as possible. Preservation activities vary widely and may include monitoring the condition of items, maintaining the temperature and humidity in collection storage areas, writing a plan in case of emergencies, digitizing items, writing relevant metadata , and increasing accessibility. Preservation, in this definition, is practiced in a library or an archive by a librarian , archivist , or other professional when they perceive a record is in need of care. Preservation should be distinguished from conservation-restoration of cultural heritage , which refers to the treatment and repair of individual items to slow the process of decay, or restore them to a usable state.

For manuscripts, digitization is achieved through scanning an item and saving it to a digital format.
