Research and technical assistance

Here’s a collection of resources for people who want to research buildings or get technical guidance.


The BLC has a collection of survey forms describing properties located throughout Boston. Many buildings and resources have yet to be surveyed. The inventory is continually being updated. Existing survey forms are available online through the Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System database.


We have created a guide to help with building research. While BLC staff cannot perform research for constituents, we will provide assistance in both the use of research tools and in locating sources and information.
