INTRODUCTION
Preservation is essential to records management in order to prevent information loss due to the deterioration of the records media. Roper [1999:37] says, 'Preservation planning is essential to good records and archives management. It is better to focus on preventative preservation measures and ensure adequate environmental and physical controls than to focus on conservation treatments for one object to the exclusion of others in the institution. Preservation policies and plans need to be coordinated with other organizational requirements. ' In this article the author is going to discuss the components that are critically important in the implementation of an effective preservation planning of an archive institution.

ARTICLE BODY
