Summary

This Collections Management Plan has been developed in order to standardize the preparation of collections for long-term curation and preservation in the new Rhode Island Department of Transportation Archaeological Collections Center that is now housed in the historic Woonsocket Depot in the City of Woonsocket.

Standardization is necessary to enable staff to monitor collections efficiently and effectively. These standards and guidelines clarify requirements for all collections which Rhode Island Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration-sponsored archaeological projects have generated and bring these collections into compliance with applicable standards found in 36 CFR § 79.

By documenting all actions that have occurred to a collection, RIDOT will maintain a chain of custody and administrative control of collections that are accepted into the Center. In turn, these data may provide critical information to future users of the collection.
