A Monumental Task: Managing & Preserving Architectural Records (Buffalo, NY(

 Presented by: The Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts


Description: 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.
