Submit your nomination electronically via email, CD-Rom, or a memory stick to your NHL contact. If you submit your materials other than through e-mail, please use an express mail carrier. Because our postal mail is irradiated, your materials will be damaged if they are sent through the US Postal Service.
You do not need to submit a cover letter with the nomination.
A complete nomination package includes the following items:
1. A completed draft nomination form with correctly formatted footnotes and bibliography.
2. A labeled USGS map with clearly defined boundaries.
3. Labeled black and white photographs and digital color images.
4. Accompanying architectural plans and/or figures, and archeological figures if appropriate.
If you are in doubt about any of these materials, ask your NHL contact for clarification.
REMEMBER: Your submission is not a final draft since it will be further reviewed by staff and peer-reviewers. Therefore, the nomination must be in an editable format.
If you have hired a consultant to work on the nomination, be aware that the nomination is not finalized at this stage. The nomination may require substantial edits after your submission and you should retain your consultant for this editing.
