Perhaps the majority of information on Newark architecture can be found in articles. Many of them have been digitized and made available on the archive page Collections/Articles, many more can be found by searching various indexes and databases. Although, indexes unlike full-text databases will provide citations only, you should not underestimate them. Avery Index is an invaluable tool for finding information on architecture, urban planning, as well as on specific buildings and architectural images.
