What is an Architecture/Design Library?

thousands of manufacturer’s product information binders and
samples, reference books, and building codes and standards.
Although the Internet has become a fast way to access some
materials, the presence of on-site libraries remain
necessary and valuable resources in today’s firms.
Why Organize Your Library?
organized architecture/design library should be efficient to
use so you know what resources you have and exactly where
they are. This saves your business hundreds of valuable

How Should a Library be Organized?
Library materials should be sorted and filed according to
CSI MasterFormat or your firm’s unique contract document
coding system. Materials are recorded in a database so
architects and designers can access them to locate materials
before they walk into the library. Materials should be
maintained and updated so current products are specified,
saving time and trouble with change orders during
construction. Building codes and standards change often and
the library should contain current materials.
