Architecture as Biography

Finding Biographies

The easiest way to find books about a person in our library is to use their name as a search in the subject field. Word order is important in a subject search. Place the last name first ( ie. jefferson thomas).  This will pull a list of items about that person.  Then you  may browse through further subdivisions.

Each of the images below is linked to a short online biography of that individual from one of our databases. Just use your IC Netpass to log in.
