Due to renovation work, the faculty library will be closed from 15 June to 17 August. The Map Room will be moved temporarily to the Central Library on Prometheusplein, room 2.76. Open from 09:00 – 17:00.


The collection is arranged according to subject and is presented in an open-plan layout. A sign shows where the different subject areas can be found in the bookcases. There is also a systematic description of the layout of the public PCs, and a glossary of the most common technical terms.

Searching for books

The entire TU Delft Library collection can be accessed through the online catalog, and can be searched by author, publisher, title keywords, location codes, etc.

Searching for articles

Articles can be found using bibliographic databases like ABSIS and Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals (see Databases). 

Searching by discipline

The TU Delft Library has developed a dedicated overview for Architecture to make the enormous quantity of information accessible.

Lending and copying

Only ‘regular’ books can be borrowed from the library. Bound annual volumes or individual issues of magazines, loose-leaf publications, reference works and old books of historical importance (generally anything printed before 1900) can only be consulted in the library for reference purposes. As long as they are not valuable or vulnerable, they may be copied, using the library’s copying and scanning facilities. See http://tresor.tudelft.nl for a list of valuable and vulnerable works.
