Architecture Reference Books

The Internet has increasingly become the tool for basic reference work.

Print-based library reference collections are generally no longer as comprehensive as before. The second floor of Bird Library holds a small architecture reference book collection. Check the NA call number range.

In Bird Library as well as the King + King Architecture Library, most directories, dictionaries, and encyclopedias are integrated into the stack collections. For guidance on basic architecture reference tools, consult the AASL Core List (right column).
