Architecture & Allied Arts Library

The Architecture and Allied Arts Library is a major center for art and architectural information in the Pacific Northwest. Occupying three floors of Lawrence Hall, the A&AA Library's unique, sunlit spaces and seating arrangements provide a welcoming environment for its users. A hallmark of AAA Library is a two-story reading room named after Marion Dean Ross, whose bequest has enabled the development of a rich collection of rare architectural history books.  Among AAA Library's unique spaces is a reservable student collaboration room.

The A&AA Library's collections primarily support the diverse academic programs associated with the School of Architecture and Allied Arts.  Read more about the scope and content of A&AA Library's collections. Complementing this collection are large holdings of art and architecture titles in Knight Library and the smaller UO Portland Library and Learning Commons. Important collections of architectural archives and drawings are housed in the UO Libraries' Special Collections & University Archives.
