For those engaged in research projects, visit Proquest’s and Chadwyck Healey – History Online program which gives researchers access to programs such as HeritageQuest, historical newspapers, ArchivesUSA, Digital Sanborn Maps and other similar databases. The digital Sanborn Maps are a more recent addition to the collection and of great value if you are looking at the landscape progression of a small town. Another resource of interest is the History On-line program. For more information visit: www.umi.com, www.proquest.com, or www.chadwyck.com.

For continuing education, The Landscape Conservation & Change Program at the Architectural Association in London, England has taught specialist skills in restoration and conservation of historic landscapes for 20 years. The coursework was redesigned in 2004 in order to reflect their philosophy of integrating conservation with urban and rural planning and of integrating contemporary design in historic environments.
