Concern about preserving historical objects and documents is not an LDS issue. There are many national organizations that are deeply involved in preservation. At the forefront of the preservation issues is the Library of Congress. Their website is a very useful resource for detailed information and links to other valuable websites.
In addition to the resources available for the preservation of physical items. there is a real concern about digital preservation, especially among genealogists. If we store out records and documents digitally (online) how can we be sure they will survive the technological changes? This is the kind of question that is addressed in the Library of Congress' Digital Preservation website.
This is only the barest beginning of the vast resources available to help you do a better job of preservation.
