Finding Images in Architecture, Art & Design: Finding Images in Architecture

This guide will help to find, use and cite images for research and study in architecture, art and design.

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, catalogs, and monographs. To find these books, search the library's online catalog.  

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

Find Images Using Databases at NJIT

The following resources are available by subscription; remote access from off campus requires a UCID login.
