Architecture Archive


The Architecture Archive contains irreplaceable research material. The Archive needs the co-operation of users to ensure that such material is preserved.

You are therefore asked to observe the following rules:

  2. Architecture plans and related material are to be used within the confines of the Archive. Items are only available when the Archivist is present.

  4. Pencils only should be used when taking notes from manuscripts or plans.
  5. Please preserve the exact order and arrangement of the papers. If items are not in proper order or a mistake is discovered, please call this to the attention of the Archivist. Do not rearrange items yourself.
  6. If access is granted to a restricted collection, you must observe the conditions under which access is granted.
  7. When citing materials the full name of the collection and the Archive should be given. A recommended form is: Holman Moses Collection. HM 130, 34C, folder 12. ArchitectureArchive@Auckland, University of Auckland.
