Strategic Programme on Preservation and Conservation (PAC)
The IFLA Strategic Programme on Preservation and Conservation (PAC) has one major goal: to ensure that library and archive materials, published and unpublished, in all formats, will be preserved in accessible form for as long as possible according to the following principles:
- preservation is essential to the survival and development of culture and scholarship;
- international cooperation is a key principle;
- each country must accept responsibility for the preservation of its own publications.
Our key resource towards achieving this goal is IFLA's fourteen Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Centres, hosted by libraries around the globe. These Centres hold a wide range of knowledge on regional and international issues in cultural heritage conservation and preservation.
