Paper: Engineering Archive - Preservation and Prospects

Abstract: Strategies for collecting, conserving, discussing and making available Engineering Archive are reviewed. Because the field for collecting is so wide, categories need to be identified. The category of books and papers, such as letters, plans, and similar, is a primary interest here. The internet has to some extent replaced conventional books and papers for everyday use and reference. In archival terms this has strengthened the case for wishing and needing to value and conserve the books and papers from the pre-internet era. This need will continue into the future even if the on-line coverage and content continues to expand in unexpected ways. Educational initiatives are also discussed for promoting the preservation of engineering heritage. These initiatives could also complement the aims of the Engineering New Zealand Foundation in the future.
