Q. I have an architecture assignment, but I do not know where to start.
The University Libraries' have a website for all of their resources: library.ttu.edu.
If your assignment is only about architecture, the Architecture Library has a Research Guide, where you should start. From the Libraries' homepage, click on Architecture Library on the upper-left sidebar. At the Architecture Library website, select Research Guides on the right sidebar.
Link to Architecture Research Guide: http://guides.library.ttu.edu/arch
Notice that this site is organized in tabs, by type of information: Databases & Journals, Books & More, Standards & Practice, Architectural Drawing, Images, Web Resources, Distance Programs, and Help!
Books & More: Search the library catalog for books (print & electronic), DVDs, journals and other materials in the University Library, Architecture Library and Southwest Collections.
Journal Articles: If you need to locate a journal article, choose Databases & Journals and start your search with Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals
Images: If you are looking for architectural images, in digital format, choose the Images tab, where you can search ARTstor and/or the local image collections.
