UNLV Architecture Studies Library
TITLES FOR BEGINNING SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS
Compiled by Jeanne Brown, Head, Architecture Studies Library; September 2003
These titles are all in the UNLV Architecture Studies Library. They are all heavily used. The older titles have a record of being read year after year by each new class of students, and the recent titles have already demonstrated their popularity. The Faculty of the School have recommended these titles to their students, as I do to you. JB
