About the ARC

The Architecture Resource Center (ARC) was established in 1986 as a branch of the James White Library. It provides the Division of Architecture with resources for architectural research. It also supports other campus disciplines such as facility planning, educational and church architecture, environmental psychology, behavioral science, etc. The collection is of a broad scope with an academic focus in architecture and design. The ARC is constantly enhancing its collection with audiovisual materials, books, periodicals and reference materials.

Located on the south side of the Architecture Building, the Architecture Resource Center is readily accessible for in-class usage and from the architecture studios.
