The Environmental Design Archives is a self-supporting research facility within the College of Environmental Design. It is only through the funds we raise by charging fees for research time, publication, and digitizing that the Archives can maintain staff and provide access to the records of generations of architects, landscape architects, designers, and architectural photographers. Providing access and preservation are our main priorities. If you have questions about the fee schedule please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
