AbstractArchitectural archives contain cultural records that are valuable to researchers and students of architecture. According to a national survey conducted for this thesis, many of these valuable records are not accessible. Architectural records that are not accessible may become neglected, thereby jeopardizing their long term preservation. This thesis proposes that architectural records will become more accessible when the archives containing these records are linked to curricula in schools of architecture. The thesis outlines the change in mission, the educational programs, and the planning criteria required to transform these archives from expensive repositories to centers of education.
