The National Register has recently published a new bulletin entitled, Telling the Stories: Planning Effective Interpretive Programs for Properties Listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It outlines a simple process for planning effective public education programs at historic places and includes some great case studies. The bulletin emphasizes the usefulness of information collected in the survey and registration process and the documentation in National Register files in developing interpretive programs. Nominating and listing properties in the National Register is the first step. Using that information to "tell the stories" of these places to the general public is critical to ensuring their long-term preservation. For copies of the bulletin, please contact the National Register reference desk at 202/343-8012 or by e-mail at nr_reference@nps.gov@nps.gov . The bulletin is also available on the National Register Web site at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/
