Records include written, graphic and photographic documents that record the collection and its stewardship, including preservation treatment. While some records warrant archival materials, treatment and storage, it is the methodology, process and resulting information that is emphasized and integrated into an information and communication management system, which adheres to Collections Management Systems and Technology standards and is database driven. The Location of records must be in an archival environment.

Formalized, detailed recording, assessment, and development of preservation treatments are critical to all preservation work.
