CULTURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AND HISTORIC PRESERVATION
- APT Bulletin. 4/yr.
- Call number: NA 106. A81
- No bibliography. The APT Bulletin is the quarterly publication of
the Association for Preservation Technology International. As the name of
the funding institution implies, this journal has an international scope with
contributing writers from all over the world. Each issue lists one broad topic
at the top of the table of contents which all of the articles in that edition
discuss. Two such topics are "Computers in Conservation" and "Preservation
of Historic Masonry." By judging from the depth and complexity of the
articles, APT's target audience is comprised of architects, historians, preservationists,
and scholars in other related fields. One highly useful, recurring feature
in the APT Bulletin is the book review section. In each issue, two
or three books are reviewed in in-depth, lengthy reviews which can span up
to a page per book. Overall, each issue of this journal provides the reader
with a variety of ways to tackle a preservation issue. In the edition dedicated
to preserving historic masonry, there are entries ranging from an introduction
as to what constitutes historic masonry to laboratory tests and evaluations
of different conservation practices to the application of the conserving material.

- The Old-House Journal. 6/yr.
- Call number: NA 7125. 042
- No bibliography. The Old-House Journal is published bimonthly by
Dovetale Publishers in Gloucester, Massachusetts. This journal is geared toward
members of the general public who have an interest in learning how to preserve
and restore old houses or who may be in the midst of a project and need further
information. The journal is more popular in nature than scholarly, but the
articles are very informative so chances are even the professional might learn
something new in each issue. Towards the end of each issue, the OHJ publishes
a series of lists which include restoration firms and new products one can
use as a source of reference for future projects. The articles vary from issue
to issue, but each focuses on a specific stage of home restoration. This journal
tells it like it is, and does not attempt to glorify the process of restoring
an old house. One article entitled, "What to Do About Peeling Ceilings,"
surmised that although there are some steps to making the process of shearing
paint a little easier, the best remedy is elbow grease. All of the articles
are written in a style with the amateur preservationist in mind. This journal
truly provides the reader with hands-on techniques that can be applied directly
to a project.

- Published by SPACES (Saving and Preserving Arts and Cultural Environments),
