    This article identifies a number of challenges facing national libraries all over
    the world as digitally-born materials replace the physical antecedents that
    have been well known to us for centuries, and it describes how the Royal
    Library of Denmark is responding to these challenges. The author argues
    that if we want to preserve the digitally-born part of cultural heritage and
    knowledge production in the future, these problems have to be solved. We
    are running out of time if we are to avoid the loss of data and cultural heritage
    in the coming decades, as indeed happened on the web in the 1990s.
