Architecture: Other libraries

A guide to finding information in architecture. Includes links to key resources and sources of help.

If you need materials not held at Reading you can use our Inter-Library Loans service to request them from another library, or you may be able to visit another library to use them.

Inter-library loans

The ILL service can obtain a wide range of academic books, journals, and conference proceedings. Because of the costs involved it is meant only for material which is essential to your studies or research.

For more information see our Inter-Library Loans webpages.

Other Libraries

Visiting other libraries

As a member of the University of Reading you can usually use other academic libraries. However, if you want to consult another Library's collections please contact the Library concerned before making a special journey. Consult the UK Active Map of Universities and HE Institutions for contact details.

We are members of two SCONUL schemes which enable you to access many other UK HE libraries. In some cases you may be able to borrow.

For more information see our guide to Using other libraries.
