The benefits of Preventive Conservation will only be appreciated in the long term, therefore action needs to be planned, financed and executed to provide the best possible care at the present time. It should involve everyone that works for or with the collection, as all have a role to play in preventing damage to the collection. Teamwork needs to be developed, guided and coordinated to maximize benefits and minimize costs.
