The National Park Service has a couple of projects that document some of America's historic structures. One of these projects is HABS (Historic American Buildings Survey). This project's goal is to document America's architectural heritage. The other is HAER (Historic American Engineering Record). This project's goal is to document America's engineering legacy. You can find out more about both projects by visiting the Built in America project at the American Memory Project. The library also has folding brochures on both project in our Government Documents collection. You will find the HABS brochure at I 29.2:H 62/43 and the HAER brochure at I 29.2:H 62/42. You may also find a brochure on HALS (Historic American Landscapes Survey) at I 29.2:H 62/41 and a brochure on CRGIS (Cultural Resources Geographic Information Systems) at I 29.2:C 89/15.
