The American Anthropological Association (AAA) has endorsed the Archaeological Data Archive Project. AAA Executive Director John M. Cornman conveyed the Executive Board's decision to endorse the project, as it had earlier endorsed the Council for the Preservation of Anthropoligical Records (see Workshops Held by CPAR in this issue of the CSA Newsletter). The two projects complement one another in that CPAR is intended to assist with and encourage archival work for a wide variety of media and for the entire discipline of anthropology; the ADAP is aimed at the actual creation of an archive of machine-readable data from archaeological research. ADAP Director Harrison Eiteljorg, II, said, "We are delighted to have the AAA's endorsement, and we hope that a representative of the AAA will soon join the steering committee."
