Finding Books

Books remain important to the disciplines of art, architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture.

If we don't own the book or have access to an online version, request it via the Libraries' Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service, ILLiad.

Note on Controlled Vocabulary

Most searchers rely exclusively on keywords to retrieve records in online catalogs. If you wish to retrieve more precise results, try searching by controlled vocabulary for your topic, often referred to as "subject headings" or "descriptors."

For example, the Library of Congress subject heading for American art is "Art, American." You do not need to enter the comma or capitalize.
