Historic American Engineering Record(HAER)
A program of the National Park Service that has documented exemplary engineering works since 1969. The HAER has established a collection of the same nature as HABS on engineering landmarks, such as bridges, mills, factories, foundries, subways, and tunnels. Documentation includes photographs, measured drawings, and written historical information, and is archived at the Library of Congress.
