Welcome to the Library
Welcome to the West Valley College Library information portal for architecture & interior design. I have found some credible websites, subscription databases, books and e-books to support your classroom experience.

Tips for Success
When you find a good source (book, article, web page), record the title, author, and other bibliographic info (journal title, web address, etc.).
- Take notes from your sources.
- As you read, mark the parts you might like to quote in your paper.
- Keep organized. Keep a binder with copies of articles, your notes, and drafts of your outline.
