The preservation budget for an installation work requires consideration of each component of the work on its own, as well as the needs of the work as a whole. The budgetary guidelines below focus on media components-video and digital components, to be specific.

Additionally, the basic principles outlined in this section-the necessity of breaking down costs into such subcategories as condition, storage, etc.-can illuminate the budgeting process for non-media components as well.
