    There are many institutions dedicated to the permanent preservation of documentary materials; many models have been developed and also solutions which apply to them. Turnkey solutions enable us to use the software solutions on the one hand and to provide the rental space and archiving data on the other. Legislation in this area is fairly clear, for example The Law about Protection of Documents and Archives. Much less determined are ways of digitization, construction, maintenance and protection of electronic publications of institutions such as educational institutions, libraries, museums and galleries. In order to maintain the publications of our ancestors, namely our cultural heritage, and to preserve the works created today (various cultural, national, research endeavours) there is a need for greater sistematization during the process of permanent preservation of electronic publications. Each and every publication should be preserved permanently in spite of the devastating impact of the environment to which it is exposed. In this way we could ensure access to a wider community of users via the Internet, regardless of the time and location. The present study describes some problems concerning the capture of Web content, formats of bibliographic data and the possibility of storage facilities in various formats. It describes the repositories for the storage of various contents. Finally, it offers the practical solutions enacted by some institutions in managing the process of permanent preservation of e-content.
