The assembly of the Armenian Architectural Photographic Archives-the first of its kind among ethnic histories-has revealed the value of using microform techniques for both preserving photographic records at relatively low cost and for aiding architectural research which involves large amounts of photographic detail. Moreover, the values multiply as computer capabilities are integrated with the assembly process for internal cross-referencing and for facilitating availability to researchers as an on-line data base. The article also discusses the severe difficulties that projects of this kind face due to the political-geographic barriers existing in many historical regions.
