To find information on architects you can use various resources, both in print and online. Our guide How to find information on architects will provide more specific suggestions on available materials and on how to formulate a search strategy. Below are a few selected reference publications that can be used as a source of information on architects and architectural firms. In addition you can search the online catalog to find encyclopedias, architectural histories, surveys, biographies and bibliographies.
