The resources about New York, its architecture, and city planning are abundant. Thousands of books, articles, maps, video recordings and old photographs are scattered throughout various collections around the world. This guide can be used as a gateway to these resources. It incorporates only a small selection of available materials related to a small area in Chinatown. It also contains information about the design of community centers, copyrights, and some tutorials that can help to conduct research and cite materials properly.
This guide will help you to navigate scholarly materials available at the library and on the web. It will discuss books, databases, and websites related to your class. It will also help to evaluate materials and cite them properly. In addition, it will provide numerous links that will be useful for accomplishing your assignments. Articles can be located by searching Avery Index and other databases. If you need materials not owned by the NJIT Libraries you can use Interlibrary Loan to borrow books or Document Delivery Service to request articles to be scanned and saved in PDF format, which will be delivered to your email. You can learn more about copyrights and plagiarism by visiting another guide: "Using Images, Citing, and Plagiarism: Image Reuse".Additional Resources can be found in the guide "Selected Resources for Online Teaching and Learning"
