On vacation recently I read Craig Child's Finder's Keepers.  In it he described how removing archaeological artifacts from their discovery site reduced their value—mainly because displacement eliminates the context in which the artifact was created and used.  Archaeologists and museums might be able to protect the artifact by removing it but they are not able to re-create this context.  Are librarians and libraries facing this same problem? We often talk about providing the user their information 'in context'.  What does this mean?  What are the best practices in this area?
