The UF Architecture & Fine Arts Library gives you access to 85,000 bound volumes, 640 periodicals, 200 videotapes and 40,000 microforms focusing on the history, theory and practice of architecture, art, graphic design and building construction. It also features online linkage to the Avery Index, computer and laser disc access to the Avery Drawing Collection, and a rare book collection created by Turpin Bannister. It is part of the larger UF Library System, which has holdings of over 2.8 million volumes and innumerable periodicals, videotapes, microforms and other resources housed in the Main Library and branch libraries. Particularly helpful for architectural studies is the UF Map Library (one of the most extensive collections in the nation and an invaluable resource for site analysis and topographical research). Equally useful is the UF Architecture & Fine Arts Slide Library (a vital visual resource for class presentations, with more than 200,000 slides of important works in art and architecture).
