A Monumental Task: Managing & Preserving Architectural Records


When: 7/17/2014
Where: SUNY Buffalo State, Art Conservation Department

Online RSVP

Architectural records are vital documentation of our built environment and provide insight into social and economic trends throughout history.  The tasks of collecting, managing, preserving and providing access to these records can be a challenge to those charged with their care.  Speakers at this conference will address the many aspects of caring for architectural record collections.  Participants will learn about the significance of architectural records; the array of materials and methods used to create them; collecting policies; access and use recommendations; preventive preservation measures; reformatting and management of electronic files; as well as have opportunities to engage in discussions with fellow participants who are managing similar collections.

This conference is intended for archivists, librarians, curators, historic preservation officers, records managers, and others who are responsible for collecting, preserving, and providing access to architectural, landscape, and other design records.

The Academy of Certified Archivists will award Archival Recertification Credits to eligible Certified Archivists attending this program.  For more information, go to
