National Preservation Office

The National Preservation Office (NPO) was established in 1984 to provide an independent focus for ensuring the preservation and continued accessibility of library and archive material held in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Although primarily funded by the British Library, NPO is a central, intellectually independent focus for the development of national, international, regional, and local level preservation strategies.
