Preservation at Panjab Digital Library :: Conservation at PanjabDigiLib
Preservation at Panjab Digital Library
Time is a great leveler. With the passage of time, objects, animate or inanimate, tend to decay and perish. But certain things need to be preserved and conserved for all they represent historically and all they have to continue to teach us in the future. It is through the human effort of preservation that frontiers of human knowledge and human civilizations have been extended. In an eternal race of human memory against time, it is through the endeavor of preservation and perpetuation of achievements that the continuity of human civilizations has been maintained. Thus, the successful preservation of history is the bedrock of current human information, knowledge and civilization. Without this attention and effort, elements of nature such as heat, light, humidity and natural decay, natural calamities such as earthquakes and floods, and manmade disasters such as wars and acts of vengeance and vandalism will, singly or jointly, wipe out irreplaceable foundations of the past. Establishment of archives, museums, libraries and the latest technique of digitization are some of the prevalent preservation techniques employed today.

Besides our focus on digitations and Web access, the PDL wishes also to start a preservation lab, which would be the first of its kind in North India initiated by a Non-Governmental Organization. If you have ideas for this endeavor, or you wish to help in planning and establishing this lab please write to
