Documentation Dilemma: Managing Conservation Data in the 21st

Documentation in conservation is interdisciplinary in its attempts
to categorize conditions, treatments, and site information using
ever-changing terminologies and technologies.  Criteria that
influence the documentation process include intended use, existing
background information, reporting format, and long-term
accessibility and storage.  The advent of database and digital
technologies has forever changed the documentation process.  The
2005 AIC General Session will explore concerns that touch a wide
range of conservation disciplines.

    The Committee welcomes submissions on various aspects related to

    The history of conservation documentation

    The legal and ethical issues of documentation

    The management of documentation

    The mechanics of documentation

    The use of documentation in planning and the assessment OF

    The committee is also open to exploring what future directions
    documentation may take.

AIC members interested in presenting papers during the General
Session of the 2005 Meeting, which will be held in Minneapolis,
Minnesota, should mail an abstract of no more than 500 words by
Monday October 18, 2004 to:
