The National Preservation Office (NPO) conferences have gained a reputation for their wide-ranging topics. their sincere attempt to address issues which can be at times difficult to 'pin down', and their down-to-earth approach. Such was the case with the 1995 conference 'Piecing together the jigsaw: the framework for a national preservation strategy for libraries and archives'. Undaunted by the enormity of the subject, we tried to identify and draw together some of the many strands essential to the development of such a strategy. The programme therefore looked at the elements of a national policy including retention, use, technology, cooperation, as well as the international scene in an attempt to address the subject from the point of view of both the policy maker and the preservation administrator.
