Welcome to the Architecture Library. We are located on the first floor of the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Our mission is to serve the students and faculty of the Architecture, Historic Preservation, Landscape Architecture, Real Estate Development, Urban Planning, and Urban and Regional Planning and Design PhD programs.
In the Academic Year of 2011-2012, the library underwent a program review. Accordingly, the library is currently making strategic innovations in order to become the model 21st century library for Sustainability in the Built Environment. We are now a "print limited" library. While our collections will continue to retain print monograph, periodical, and rare resources, our future acquisitions will be primarily e-resources. We collect in the areas of architectural history, design, and theory; historic preservation; landscape architectural design; real estate development; and urban studies and planning. Resources and services support the instructional and research needs of both undergraduate and graduate-level coursework. Our materials and resources are supplemented by the School's Visual Resource Collection and Computer Labs.
