The paper aims to show the gap between theoretical conservation guidelines for handling and generating safety copies of photographic negative material and the practice of professional staff in large and small collections. By translating the discipline specific guidelines into a practically oriented manual, the importance of saving photographic negative heritage could be guaranteed in the future. Collection management should be able to understand guidelines, information and practical research results and transfer it into working processes in their collections for bringing them save into the future.
