Architecture: Recommended Resources
This Research Guide supports the Architecture program at Virginia Tech which seeks to develop students who are creatively independent, enterprising, and inventive, who have the ability to order and structure intellectual difficulties, and the skills, judgement, and desire to make lasting contributions to society.
In addition to the digital resources linked below, physical maps are house in Newman Library and the Art & Architecture Library. They can be searched for using Discovery search. For assistance, get in touch with a librarian!
