Here is a selection of catalog subject headings that may be useful in finding books on California landscape architecture and gardens through the Library's catalogs. These terms can all be modified by place name, e.g., Landscape architecture--California--San Francisco Bay Area Guidebooks to cities may have sections on parks and public gardens, so check subject headings such as Berkeley, Calif.--Description and travel or Architecture--San Diego--Guidebooks.
To find websites for a specific site or individual:
Use journal and newspaper indexes and databases to discover articles on your topic. Some online databases include the full text of the articles you discover or the icon which may lead you to the full text elsewhere. In many cases, however, you will need to locate the print journal in the Library's collections; search the Library's catalogs by the journal title in order to find the shelving location and call number for the journal.
Use journal article indexes and databases to locate articles on your topic; additional indexes are listed in Landscape Architecture Indexes & Abstracts. For UC Only or UCB Only titles, go to The Library's home page→ Find → Articles
