Finding Images in Architecture Print Page

Find Images in Books and Print Journals

The majority of architectural images such as site plans, elevations, floor plans, sections, and details can be found not online but rather in books: encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, histories, catalogues, and monographs. To find these books, search the library's online catalog.  You can also review our recent acquisitions.

To locate images in journals, search the Avery Index. Other journals can be found by browsing our list of journals or using the journals locator.
