The Library has invested in a new online subscription deal for Architects’ Journal (AJ) and AJ Buildings Library (AJBL) which now enables full access to content for any number of staff and students simultaneously. Until now we were limited to one user at a time accessing these extremely popular resources.
There is a web page detailing the additional sign in step (a specific log in and password) needed to open access to the full content on both the AJ and AJBL websites.
The AJ site provides access to digital editions of the Architects’ Journal (also available in print in the Library at PER 72 on Level 3) as well as news, events and other information and data.
AJBL is a linked resource which provides over 1,900 exemplar building projects dating back to 1900, although most are less than 20 years old. There are over 50,000 images and drawings included in the collection and you can filter your search by building completion date, cost, floor area, etc.
For those interested in building projects, see also Detail Inspiration for a further 3,000 projects (use Google Chrome as your browser then right-click and select ‘Translate to English’). You can find records and links for all these e-resources in our Library catalogue as well as on the Library’s subject page for Architecture & Civil Engineering.
I’d be very happy to hear any feedback on these resources. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (David Stacey: Faculty Librarian for Engineering & Design).
