Architecture + Research

How can the library help you with your research?

Buildings are best studied in person, but we can't all go traveling the world to look at different types of architecture. Fortunately, the library offers an array of online resources and books that allow you to study buildings, their history, elements, materials, and the architects who designed them wherever you are. 

This guide will help you find books, online resources, images, etc. that are specifically focused on the discipline of architecture. 

If you have a specific research need, you can set an appointment, email a librarian, or chat with us. We're always happy to help.
