It is a familiar observation that digital cultural heritage brings with it new challenges. One such challenge is the effect of age on digital objects held within heritage databases, and on the array of materials that surround and support access to these resources. In this position paper, we discuss effects of long-term societal change on data preservation in digital cultural heritage, and present a means by which ongoing user modelling processes drawing on contemporary resources can support `just-in-time' preemptive review of material to be presented to the public, as well as feeding into enhancement of data retrieval processes. We remark that similar issues and principles apply in contemporary information access contexts: for example, the processes of information sharing between expert practitioners and non-expert members of the public may exhibit similar effects.
