ORGANIZER’S STATEMENT: Two sequential workshops were held in Taos, New Mexico, October 31-November 8, 1998 in support of the activities of the Council for the Preservation of Anthropological Records (CoPAR). The first workshop brought CoPAR experts in computer data base development together with archivists, librarians and anthropologists to develop final protocols, formats and thesauri for the CoPAR Guide to Anthropological Records on the World Wide Web. The task was accomplished and the Guide went on­line in early January 1999.
