Loeb Design Library's Special Collections holds an extensive collection of rare books, drawings, manuscripts, and photographs that spans the history of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning from the Middle Ages through the 20th century.
From the library's website: "we strongly recommend all researchers to contact department staff in advance to assure access to materials. A substantial amount of material is stored off-site and it may take some time to be assembled." Appointments can be scheduled with Inés Zalduendo, Special Collections Archivist and Reference Librarian.
