This remarkable resource used to be available as a complete document on the National Park Service’s Technical Preservation Services website, but now they’ve split it up into what seems to be four smaller pdf files, so we can’t just link to the whole thing anymore.
We wanted to be able to scroll the whole document at once, so we added it here. If you’d prefer to read the National Park Service’s version, you can access the NPS’s pdfs from this page.
