About this Guide


Welcome to the Architecture Journals Subject Guide! This guide is intended as a comprehensive list of architectural journals and serials held within Ricker's collection. This guide's focus is print journals, but online-accessible resources are noted where available.


On these pages, architectural publications within our collection have been sorted by type. Where journals might include academic, historical, and organizational publications, magazines and newspapers include professional, trade, and society publications. Print journals can be found in Ricker Library's reference room, and current issues are located on horizontal shelves on room's east wall. Holdings on the titles listed in this guide vary, but Ricker holds at least the most recent issues of all. Back issues, if not held by Ricker, may be located in Main Stacks or Oak Street facilities. If Ricker Library does not hold a specific issue or article in print, verify the item's online accessibility or contact the Library for more information.

Land Acknowledgment

We would like to begin our guide by recognizing and acknowledging that we, at the University of Illinois Libraries, are on the lands of the Peoria, Kaskaskia, Piankashaw, Wea, Miami, Mascoutin, Odawa, Sauk, Mesquaki, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Chickasaw Nations. These lands were the traditional territory of these Native Nations prior to their forced removal; these lands continue to carry the stories of these Nations and their struggles for survival and identity.

As a land-grant institution, the University of Illinois has a particular responsibility to acknowledge the peoples of these lands, as well as the histories of dispossession that have allowed for the growth of this institution for the past 150 years. We are also obligated to reflect on and actively address these histories and the role that this university has played in shaping them. This acknowledgement and the centering of Native peoples is but a start as we move forward for the next 150 years.

(From the Office of the Chancellor, as recommended by the Native American House)
