About

**Summer 2016: Please see note below regarding Architecture Library renovations!**

**PLEASE NOTE: THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED ON JULY 13 - 15 DUE TO CARPET INSTALLATION, and ON JULY 22 DUE TO DRILLING WORK.**

Architecture LibraryThe School of Architecture Library supports the research and teaching needs of the School and is part of the larger Princeton University Library system. Our holdings specialize in modern and contemporary architecture and design, the history and theory of architecture, urban studies, landscape architecture, preservation, and city planning. The collection constitutes approximately 35,000 volumes on-site with thousands more housed in the Research Collections and Preservation Consortium (ReCAP) facility. The library subscribes to more than 300 domestic and foreign periodicals, has a growing collection of rare materials, and a video library.

The video collection focuses broadly on productions relating to the built environment. We collect experimental videos, interviews, features, documentaries, and cult classics. The Video Library (formerly the Humanities Resource Center), located in Firestone Library, also offers a wide range of films listed in the library catalog. 

 

***Summer 2016 - please take note: The School of Architecture Library will be undergoing renovation and shelving replacement beginning on June 20, 2016. The library will remain open throughout the renovation, but the collection will be housed offsite - with the exception of current journals and recent acquisitions. Books will be requestable through the online catalog for pickup at the Architecture Library circulation desk. The library thanks you for your patience throughout this process!
