Procedures for Acceptance of CRM-Generated Archaeological Collections and Records

The submission of archaeological collections and associated records generated through cultural resource management activities will be accepted for custodial storage at the AAL when these collections meet the criteria specified in the AAL’s stated Scope of Collections.  Each submission will be measured against the AAL curation standards, which will be provided to each interested party when requested.

Materials will not be accepted unless they are submitted in analytical categories used for analysis and reporting.  When collections do not meet these standards, submitter will be asked to modify collection to comply.  This may be done by returning materials for additional work and correction of deficiencies by the AAL staff for a standard fee.
