The Olmsted Center produces a variety of publications including Cultural Landscape Reports (CLRs), Cultural Landscapes Inventories (CLIs), historic plant inventories, landscape preservation maintenance plans, and technical preservation guides for cultural landscapes.

Non-circulating library copies of these publications and reports are available for review by appointment at the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation. Final reports are also widely distributed to National Park Service offices and external partners. In addition, some publications may be available at select libraries nationwide.

These publications are related to park cultural landscapes in the Northeast Region of the National Park System. Document hyperlinks provide access to associated Integrated Resource Management Applications records, where available.
