Architecture: Landscape Architecture

A Note on SU Libraries, Landscape Architecture Holdings:

Because there are no specific courses on landscape architecture offered through Syracuse University, our library primarily collects books and resources on the history of landscape and gardens, overviews of design, and general theory of landscape design. The King + King Architecture Library has a limited collection of these books, which primarily are shelved under call number SB.

For more extensive and in depth holdings on other aspects of landscape architecture, consult Moon Library on the SUNY ESF campus.
