The Avery Index provides specialized search capability for architectural articles spanning from the 1930s to the present day, including related topics such as landscape architecture and city planning. It is especially useful in helping to track down paper-based plans, sections, elevations, details and other technical images that may not have been digitized.
Building Types Online is a resource for the study and practice of architectural design. It includes a large collection of case studies, architectural drawings, and photographs, as well as articles on specific aspects of individual building types.
Please send positive or negative feedback on BTO to Architecture Librarian Jesse Vestermark (firstname.lastname@example.org) to aid in making a decision on whether this is worthwhile resource to carry permanently through Kennedy Library.
ARTstor is a searchable database of digital images and associated catalog data accommodating images from all time periods, cultures, and disciplines.
