Art, Architecture & Engineering Special Collections

The Art, Architecture & Engineering Special Collection includes rare, fragile, and/or limited editions. For example:

  • Early English editions of Alberti's Ten Books on Architecture.
  • Architectural treatises by Palladio, Soane, Stuart, Gibbs, and others.
  • New editions include artists' books, limited edition monographs and facsimiles (e.g., sketchbooks from Le Corbusier's travels in Germany and Asia, Aldo Rossi's sketchbooks, and sketches by Jackson Pollock).

Strengths in the special collections include publications from the first decades of the twentieth century, especially those by Le Corbusier and various Bauhaus designers, as well as Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. Several dozen black and white photographs of Wright's residential architecture taken by Henry Fuermann in the first decades of the twentieth century augment these publications.

Use of the Collection

The collection is available for individual or small group research by appointment. Volumes do not circulate, and are used only in the Special Collections area located in the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library room B240. To consult the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library Special Collections, please contact Jamie Vander Broek (jlausch@umich.edu) or Rebecca Price (rpw@umich.edu).

Database of Artists' Books

Although some of the artists' books in the AAEL collection circulate, the ones featured in the database of artists' books require more careful handling and are only available for viewing on-site in the Special Collections room B240. If you would like to see a book from this database in person, please contact artistsbooks@umich.edu to make an appointment or for more information.


The U-M Library houses many collections of unique or rare materials beyond what's available at AAEL. Visit the U-M Library Collections page to access notable collections, view digital collections, or to find a specialist.

Finding a Journal/Journal Article at the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library

When You Know the Article You are Looking For

When you have a citation/reference for an article in hand and want to find a copy of the article, you want to do what is called a known item search.

The easiest way to do a known item search for an article is to use MGet It. MGet It will give you a shortcut to print and electronic versions (if available) of articles, and to delivery options if the library doesn't own it.

MGet It isn't perfect, so if you can't locate your article with it, you should still try to look for the journal in Mirlyn. Using Mirlyn from an Engineering Perspective tells how to use Mirlyn to find journals in the library.

You may also wish to peruse the Online Journals list.


When You Don't Have a Specific Article in Mind

If you are looking for an article or articles on a particular subject or topic, you'll want to use what is known as a bibliographic database. Use the guides below to help you identify which database(s) you should use. These resources will be particularly good at helping you to find peer reviewed, professional, or research articles.

You can visit Search Tools to "Browse by subject" for additional databases in your research topic's subject area.
