Information & Research Support

We are here to help you!

The Architecture Library offers a variety of research support services for students and faculty:

  • In-person assistance at the 9th floor service desk 
  • One-on-One research consultations with the Architecture Librarians
  • Class-specific instruction sessions and/or workshops at the Library
    • Information and visual literacy competencies
  • Phone, email, and video consultations

The Library maintains a permanent reserve and course reserve collection at the 9th floor service desk. Titles available on course reserve change each semester depending upon courses taught. Not all CoA professors put materials on course reserve.

Locate course reserve titles using the Course Reserve tab within the Library Catalog.

Search by:

  • Course Name, Course Number, Professor's Name

Faculty who would like to utilize course reserve, should send an email to Ana, Senior Library Associate.

undefinedLost Item(s) Policy

Library loans are declared 'Lost' (21) days after the original due date. Lost loans incur a $125 fine per book that must be paid to Student Business Services. If/when the lost loan(s) are returned, the patron will be reimbursed $115 for each lost loan.

If you have a loan that has been declared 'Lost,' we encourage you to reach-out to us as soon as possible for assistance and/or to confirm your intent to return the book.


undefined Collection Development Policy (Coming Soon!)

The growth and curation of the Architecture Library collection is guided by a collection policy. The policy outlines the specific methods and criteria for new book, journal and digital image acquisitions to support the curriculum, teaching and research needs of CoA and TTU user community. Input from the CoA faculty and students is encouraged and a vital part of the collection development process.
