How to Submit Resource Records & Study Reports

Please follow these standards for submitting paper and digital (electronic) format resource records and study reports. At this time the NWIC accepts documents in either and or both paper and digital (electronic) format (pdf). Within the next couple of years, however, the NWIC will begin to phase out the option to submit paper documents and will accept only digital (electronic) documents with the following exceptions: HABS, HAER, and similar level evaluations containing photographs and drawings will be accepted with the report in digital (electronic) format and the photos, drawings, etc. in hard-copy. Presentations recorded on a CD or DVD may also be submitted.

Paper Document Submission

  • See the CHRIS IC Operations Manual for standards for completing a resource record.
  • Submit one unbound copy of each resource record and/or study report.
  • Submit cover letter with contact information.

Digital (Electronic) Document Submission

  • See the CHRIS IC Operations Manual for standards for completing a resource record.
  • All documents must be submitted in an UNLOCKED, Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Presently, a hard-copy of resource records is not required but a hard-copy is preferred for reports. Follow the CHRIS Standards for PDF submission.
  • The NWIC has transitioned our secure file transfer service to Box.com.  Box is an online file sharing service which we have found to be much easier to use.  Since it is hosted online, there is no program download needed. Please feel free to contact Coordinator, Bryan Much with any questions.
  • DO NOT SEND CONFIDENTIAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL INFORMATION THROUGH EMAIL. CONFIDENTIAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL DOCUMENTS IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT MUST BE SENT IN ON CD OR DVD THROUGH THE MAIL OR VIA OUR BOX SITE.
