Records of the built environment, architectural, landscape,
engineering, cartographic, and interior design, are essential for
understanding, using, and preserving the physical world.  These
documents, photographs, and drawings are often unique, complex,
technical, beautiful, unwieldy, and frequently at risk.  Archivists,
librarians, office administrators, records managers, and museum
curators have wrestled with the issues of what to collect or retain,
how to appraise, arrange, describe, and preserve these diverse

In addition to the subjects listed above, this workshop will also
provide a context for under-standing the historical development and
creation of architectural records, a framework for addressing their
management and use; a discussion of the role of electronic media in
the design and construction process and how it affects records
professionals; and the importance of an active relationship between
creators, keepers, and users of these records. The workshop will
present an overview of the different types of records and how to
identify them, and address aspects of their archival administration
including reformatting, legal and access issues, reference
practices, and exhibition.
