To get started, browse Franklin from the library homepage. Try the subject heading "Landscape architecture." You can also locate many resources in the call number range for landscape architecture, SB469-476, as well as in the architectural call numbers NA2000s and NA9000s. Keep current by reading Scenario Journal, an online publication focused on urban landscape.

The Fisher Fine Arts Library holds approximately 200,000 materials including rare books, maps, prints, videos, microfilm and microfiche, all in support of Penn Design and the Department of the History of Art. In addition, the library subscribes to over 300 journals, online and in print.
