UNLV Libraries -> Architecture Studies Library -> Finding and Using Resources -> Modules and Lists: Reference books and web sites


Modules and Lists: Reference books and websites
Reference tools include dictionaries, encyclopedias, directories, standards & guidelines, handbooks, codes, etc. They are intended to provide factual information, and are usually used for short consultations. The Architecture Studies Library locates its print reference books in the reference section across from the service desk.

The outline below is intended to take you to the type/topic of reference tool you are looking for. The contents of each individual book or web site will require exploration on your part to determine the best title for your needs and the features of each that might prove valuable in your search for information.

Questions? Ask the Architecture Studies Librarian online or any of the staff in the Architecture Studies Library. The general phone number for the library is 702-895-1959.
