We're here for you!

Browse the tabs on this page to learn how to find books, articles, images, standards, codes, professional practice support, and research guidance. We're here to raise your game in all your design and history/theory pursuits.

Keep in mind, though, that no one guide can cover everything on a subject--and good research is complicated, especially with so much more available to you in an academic environment. When your wheels start to spin or you're facing an important assignment, consult your subject librarian.
