Lowell (Environmental Design Archives, U. of California-Berkeley) and Nelb, an archivist, records preservation consultant and historian in Michigan, offer a manual for dealing with collections of design records generated by architects, landscape architects, industrial design firms, and engineering and construction firms. The range of the materials, they say, is nearly as unwieldy as the objects themselves. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
