Managing Plans and Drawings

Course duration: January 9 - March 20, 2023

Registration: closes January 5, 2023

Architectural records are perhaps the least understood medium in the archival world. There are many different types of drawings, from blueprints to renderings, sketches to CADs. What should you accept, what is valuable, how are they best preserved? Using the publication Architectural Records: Managing Design and Construction Records, students will be introduced to the management of plans and drawings in seven modules.

Topics for the modules include:

Module 1.    History of architecture

Module 2.    Understanding the creation process

Module 3.    Appraisal

Module 4.    Arrangement and Description

Module 5.    Preservation

Module 6.    Providing Access

Module 7.    Digitization

Students will also receive, by electronic mail, a self-study guide which includes instructions, supplementary reading (where applicable), self-study questions, and a practical project for each module. The self-study questions and projects will be submitted to the Instructor for evaluation. Upon completing all the assignments within the allotted time, students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.

Students can expect to work about 10-12 hours per week on readings and assignments for the duration of the course.
