The Importance of Archives

Historian Stephen Otto will address the challenges that archives face while trying to stay ahead of the collecting curve with respect to architectural records, and will suggest some strategies for acquiring the best of the best. Michael McClelland of ERA Architects will explore how academic and popular interest in building types and materials changes over time, and how important it is for archives to support primary research in these new and different areas.
