Summary

This resource contains a report on an assessment of the status of archaeological collections at four installations, representing the major branches of the armed services, that were selected to participate in the curation needs-assessment study. The selected installations were Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, California; Fort Sill, Oklahoma (Army); Vandenberg Air Force Base, California; and the Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake, California. Fort Gordon, Georgia, was selected initially as the representative Army installation, but it was soon recognized that the assessment for this facility could not be accomplished in a manner comparable to the assessments for other installations. Despite the problems with conducting the assessment at Fort Gordon, the results are included here.

Assessment of each installation's compliance with major legislative initiatives included pre-fieldwork investigation, field inspection and assessment of repositories and collections, NAGPRA-compliance assessment, and report preparation. The collections from these five installations are stored in at least 20 repositories.

The assessment study considered the status of the physical facilities (repositories) for the installations' collections, as well as the status of artifacts, human skeletal remains, documentation, and repository management controls.
