Technical Reference Center


The Technical Reference Center, (TRC), serves the University as an independent reference library supported through the College of Architecture, and is housed within the College. Additional resources beyond the holdings of the TRC are available through the Sterling C. Evans (main campus) Library.

Located on the second floor of the Langford Architecture Center, Building A, the TRC is convenient to the Department and Program offices, faculty offices and studio areas. The library provides print, electronic and media collections, reference materials, group and private study spaces, service areas for document and image scanning, copying, and media viewing and display.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Technical Reference Center is to enhance and support learning and discovery in a student-centered and collaborative environment. Ever engaged with the educational objectives of the College of Architecture, we offer specialized reference and support for College programs, initiatives, and curriculum. Striving to meet the diverse informational needs of students, faculty and staff, and with a commitment to excellence and service, we provide access to resources, both electronic and traditional that will enable users to reach their academic and research goals.
