Class I: Literature Search

Documentary research is the starting place for all inventory efforts. Background research will aid in pinpointing cultural resources that have already been adequately documented, or cultural resources that are known but need further study to obtain full documentation.

Class III: Intensive Cultural Resources Inventory

An intensive inventory is a systematic, detailed field inspection done by, or under the direct, professional architectural historians, historians, archaeologists, and/or other appropriate specialists. This type of study is usually required to formulate a preliminary determination of the significance of resources.
