(Walk through this interactive tutorial to learn how to search the UA Library catalog.)

Architecture Books in the UA Libraries
Most architectural books are located on the 5th floor of the Science-Engineering Library and will fall within the NA call number. Be sure to check the book location in the library catalog.

Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture
Books for the study of urban planning (usually within the HT call number) are found in the Main Library. Landscape architecture books (usually within the SB call number) are housed in the Science-Engineering Library.

Archives/Special Collections
The UA Libraries have many special collections and archives available to students. While many of the collections' holdings are searchable through the UA library catalog, some have their own separate catalogs or finding aids. See Special Collections.
