Architectural Records Workshop
in Pittsburgh, PA

The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts, The Heinz
Architectural Center, and the Conservation Department of the
Carnegie Museum of Art are co-sponsoring a one day architectural
records workshop, "Have You Got the Blues?  Architectural Records:
Their Identification, Management, Storage, and Treatment," in
Pittsburgh, PA on Friday, October 4, 1996.  The workshop will be
held at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater, 4400 Forbes Avenue,
Pittsburgh, PA.  A registration fee of $75.00 includes a box lunch
and materials.  Enrollment will be to thirty participants.  The
workshop is partially funded by the National Endowment for the
Humanities, The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and the
Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation.


    The workshop is intended for architectural historians,
    architects, librarians, archivists, museum curators, collections
    care managers, conservators, and technicians who have
    architectural records or other oversized paper-based materials
    in their care or collections.


    The speakers will address the problems of caring for the diverse
    materials of an architectural records collection.  The workshop
    will help participants identify different original and
    reproductive processes; consider options for organization,
    cataloging, access, and reformatting of architectural records;
    recognize storage problems and options; and learn basic
    collections care methods and remedial treatments that can be
    safely accomplished in-house.  The workshop will include a tour
    of the storage facilities of The Heinz Architectural Center at
    the Carnegie Museum of Art and demonstrations of appropriate
    handling techniques and repairs of architectural drawings and
