The following guide will assist the student who wishes to browse the Environmental Design Library's historic preservation 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, on the Internet, and in other classifications. Historic preservation materials fall into many classifications, and 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 an Environmental Design Library reference librarian, 210 Bauer Wurster Hall.
