Back to the Stone Age: How Clemson’s Architecture Library Built a Builders’ Sample Collection
The Southeastern Librarian
Libraries are no longer bound by print and paper. In this digital age, where Library 2.0 is a buzzword among the academic librarians, online resources are increasingly becoming the norm. How, then, do librarians serve students of construction, landscape architecture, and architecture, and provide them with hands-on examples of materials they will encounter once they graduate, when most databases represent these products only in the form of online images? This was one of the problems faced by the Gunnin Architecture Library at Clemson University when a new Master’s program in Landscape Architecture was initiated two years ago.
