Browser's Guide to Architecture: the NA Classification: Architecture by Country

The following guide to the NA section will assist the student who wishes to browse this portion of the Environmental Design Library's architectural collection.

Introduction

The University of California, Berkeley, Libraries' collections are arranged according to a subject classification system devised by the Library of Congress. Architectural materials are generally assigned to a section of call numbers beginning with the letters NA, although substantial related materials are found in TH (building and construction), NC (drawing and graphic arts), NK (interior architecture and design), GN (vernacular architecture), E-F (U.S. history, historic preservation), HT (city planning), K (architecture and law), LB (buildings for education), RA (hospital design), etc. For a detailed listing see the Library of Congress Classification Outline.

The following guide to the NA section will assist the student who wishes to browse this portion of the Environmental Design Library's architectural collection. Note that browsing a collection as large as the Environmental Design Library has considerable limitations: users will miss volumes checked out, in remote storage, in other libraries on campus, and in other classifications. Remember also that architects will need to use many materials beyond those classed NA, and that classifications change over the years, so a thorough search of your subject will require checking the Library catalogs.

If you need help, please be sure to consult the Environmental Design Library reference staff, 210 Wurster Hall.
