Formerly the Architectural Publications Index, The British Architectural Library is the largest and most comprehensive resource in the United Kingdom for research and information on all aspects of architecture. It is regarded as the national collection on architecture in the UK. The Library was established in 1834 as part of the RIBA, and today its architectural collections are one of the top three in the world and the finest in Europe. A wealth of subjects in architecture, from prehistory to the present, is encompassed by the collections which contain over four million items in a variety of languages and formats. Allied subjects such as construction, engineering, landscape architecture, interior design and decoration, planning, and construction law are also well represented.
