UBC Theses (Print)

With the closure of the Architecture Reading Room, all SALA's graduating print theses/projects up to 2018 are being transferred to UBC Library.  As these materials are processed into the Library's Automated Storage & Retrieval System (ASRS), they will become findable in the Library Catalogue, via a keyword search for: ARCH 549.

The Reading Room online catalogue remains available.  To search for a thesis go to the online catalogue for UBC Archives, Bibliographies and Reading Rooms, limit your search to the location Architecture Reading Room and type thesis into the search box.
