Researching Princeton Architecture: Finding Books/Searching by Architect

An overview of resources relating to Princeton University's campus architecture.

Searching for Books about Princeton Architecture

In the library catalog, one can do a Keyword search with the name of the building in quotes, but make sure that one has all possible names of a building, now and in the past. Alternatively, do a Subject (Browse) search for Princeton University and look at the many sub-headings (A-Z), such as Princeton University Buildings. You can "edit search" on the top category and add an add'l. keyword. You can also look for a subject heading this way with the name of the specific building in which you are interested. If the architect is known, you may wish to look up this way: keyword with name in quotes, or Subject (Browse); Last name, first name if architect is a named person, or use the firm's name.
