Citation and Use

 
The information and AIA Archives materials available in the AIA Historical Directory are for research and study purposes only. If you wish to use the information and/or brief quotes from the materials in your writing, you should follow the usual fair-use guidelines for copyrighted works, and cite the source as shown below.
You may not reproduce materials for publication or exhibit without permission from the AIA Archives. Also, please note that the AIA does not own the copyright to everything in the AIA Archives. For example, copyright to a photograph from an Architects’ Roster Questionnaire is owned by the original photographer (or his/her heirs). The photographer’s permission would be required in order to reproduce the photo in a book.

Citing a record in the AIA Historical Directory or citing AIA Archives materials

 
The following examples show citations to an architect’s record in the AIA Historical Directory, or to the scanned archival materials that are linked to the architect’s record. The section of the record that has links to the AIA Archives holdings will tell you what AIA Archives records have been scanned. In the case of an individual architect this is normally (but not always) Membership Files. For a firm, it is usually Architects’ Roster Questionnaire.
 
The unique ahd number for the specific record is used to distinguish among the five Arthur Browns  listed in the AIA Historical Directory.
