Architecture: Design Research

This guide covers how to identify relevant and reliable sources for research, how to navigate online and in-person resources at the University of Maryland, and how to cite sources within a research product.

Access to Library Resources (as of 07/27/2020)

Due to COVID-19, the Architecture Library is physically CLOSED; but you can still request books through the catalog. 

We will be opening on August 9, 2021 at 11 AM.

The Libraries on campus are in Phase 2 of re-opening. 

For up-to-date policies regarding in-person and remote services, please see the university's library services page. 

Starting 07/27/2020, curbside pickup is available at McKeldin library for items circulating from campus libraries and University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) libraries. 

eBooks and other online resources continue to be available through WorldCatUMD. You can filter the search so that it does not include print copies by specifying your desired format on the ribbon on the left-hand side of the page. A number of books and online resources can be found here or through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Services

To speak with a librarian, use our chat service, available Mon-Fri, 9 am - 6 pm. For architecture-specific assistance, contact or schedule a consultation with Cindy Frank
