Welcome to the Architecure subject guide

Welcome to the subject guide for Architecture. This guide has been compiled by your subject librarian and will help you find the information you need for your work.

This guide has been divided into different sections, each covering a different type of resource, such as Books, Journals and so forth. Each section has a menu with further, more specific options, such as "Key architecture journals" or "What to do if a book is not available in the Library".

For more information about library services and facilities see the Library Services pages on MyHallam.
