Architecture Library Guide

Information regarding resources, services and policies found on RensSearch apply to all users of the Rensselaer Libraries.

This guide is under construction, designed to provide location-specific information about the branch library in the Greene building, and services pertinent to users in the School of Architecture. It will replace the Architecture Library site which, though still live, is no longer being updated. Content from that site is being reviewed and adapted for this guide.
