History of Architecture: Conducting Research

This guide has been designed to help students in the School of Art and Design with the study of the History of Architecture

Conducting Research

To write your papers or prepare presentations you will need to conduct research. This can involve finding information on specific architects, styles, time periods, or particular buildings using a variety of sources such as books, journals, databases, collections of images, archival documents, in print and online.  Two guides, "How to research a building" and "How to Find Information on Architects," were designed to assist you in developing an appropriate search strategy. Below you will find just a few selected books that can help you to start your research or offer examples of architectural analysis. More titles are listed in other guides or can be found by searching the online catalog.
