As dissertation writing is now an elective for Architecture students, please email me if you want to meet me re. literature review of academic sources and archival research. Let me know your research topic as a starting point for discussion; a list of research questions would be much better, but I'm happy to just have a chat.
In all NUS Libraries, we use the Library of Congress classification scheme, and these are some Subject Headings you will use to locate materials relevant to your study:
N class: Fine arts
NA 1-NA 9428: Architecture
NK 1-NK 9990: Decorative arts, including interior design
HT 51-HT 65: Human settlements and communities
HT 101-HT 178: City planning; urban renewal and development
HT 330-HT 395: Urbanization; metropolitan and suburban areas
SB 469-SB 486: Landscape architecture and gardening; parks
TH 845-TH 4977: Building construction, methods, materials and technology-related
This subject guide covers resources available mainly at NUS Libraries. This is a selective list of research materials for students enrolled in the former module 'AR5011 Research Methodology', and those who are writing a 'directed/independent' research paper.
