A Guide to U.S. Historic Preservation through Federal Government Documents and Related Information.
Holden, Jill R. J.
Designed to introduce researchers to sources of federal information on the historic preservation of significant buildings and sites, the purpose of this guide is threefold: (1) to show the variety of governmentally produced documents and publications that relate to historic preservation (citing as examples documents from 1984 to 1986); (2) to describe guides and sources for such federal information; and (3) to indicate the broader context of historic preservation of which these government documents are a part by including information about government agencies, funding, and publications relating to historic preservation. Divided into eight major sections, this guide includes a brief history of the U.S. Preservation Movement and information on government documents; national agencies and committees involved in historic preservation and their publications; congressional actions; state and local historic preservation; historic preservation funding and incentives; publications about historic preservation; and public interest in historic preservation. A glossary and a 43-item bibliography are also provided, and a legislative history of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 is appended. (CGD)
