The Library is pleased to announce the recent addition of the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals. This research database provides access to articles on architecture, urban planning, interior design, historic preservation, and more! The Avery Index covers periodicals in these subject areas as far back as the 1930s, and contains some full text.
You can find links to the Avery under “A” on the Library’s A-Z list of databases. It is also linked from some of our research guides, such as the Art & Art History Guide and the Interior Design Guide.
