The Subject Guide to Architectural Collections at Yale is a list of architectural records and resources in Yale Library Special Collections. The guide, though not comprehensive, lists the most substantive holdings. The guide is organized by subject. Choose a particular subject, or view a list of all the collections by choosing the appropriate tab above.
Additional information about the materials is available in the catalog record in ORBIS, the Yale University Library online public catalog, and/or via the Archives at Yale finding aid database. (Finding aids provide context for the materials described as well as a contents list, usually to the box and folder level and sometimes to the item level.) Click on the highlighted titles in this guide to access the finding aid.
While the subject content of several of the collections described is exclusively or primarily architecture, the majority of the collections contain additional materials relevant to a broad spectrum of other research topics. There are also collections not listed in this guide that may be relevant to research in architecture.
