The concept of "context" has great importance in digital preservation. This paper analyzes the meaning of context from the point of view of access to digital objects, combining linguistics, terminological disambiguation in information retrieval and text categorization aspects. In these areas, the context is a key element for successful disambiguation and thus get better results. Therefore, the preservation and subsequent access of digital objects should also consider the preservation of appropriate information about the terminology and social context in which these objects were generated.
