Architecture: Getting Started



At the moment, we are having some issues with some of our e-resources.

  • Please see our web page list of currently access e-resources here.
  • Please try using a different browser to see if they work there.
  • For more information about every database, please click here.
  • Alternative resources can be found at the top of this guide under the Web Resources tab.
  • Google Scholar might also help to find journal articles.
  • You can still access your reading list however you may encounter some problems when trying to access particular resources such as scanned chapters.



Most e-books are still available, but you might need to access them via an alternative route:

1.    E-books from EBC/Proquest need to access via this alternative link -  click “Resource” to get in and search for the book title.

2.    E-books from Ebsco are still accessible via the catalogue.
Just search for the book title in the catalogue as usual, and those mark with “Ebsco Academic Collection” or “Ebsco” are accessible.



We are working hard to resolve these issues.

Please email if you have any queries.
