Abstract: The Virtual Observatory (VO) promises to provide astronomers with the ability to re-use archival data with an ease, and on a scale, impossible before. This gives issues relating to the preservation (and, more generally, curation) of astronomical data an increased prominence. In this paper, I review some of these issues, focussing on discussing three basic questions which should help elucidate successful preservation strategies for our community, and providing a brief outline of some of the relevant developments from outwith astronomy.
