From Issue No. 132 | December 1, 2008

The Cultural Resource Management Program at the University of Victoria, British Columbia is pleased to offer the following distance education course for professionals and volunteers working in heritage sites, heritage conservation and heritage planning offices.

Defining the heritage value or significance of a historic place or resource is the foundation on which any heritage conservation process is built. This course begins with an exploration of the range of historical, aesthetic, social, and scientific values that establish the character-defining elements of historic resources, including buildings, structures, historic districts, and cultural landscapes. Various methods of inventory and evaluation, from numerical scoring systems to systems that establish historical contexts of thematic studies, are discussed, along with their roles in guiding subsequent conservation planning and decision-making.
