School of APL – new resources

We are delighted to announce some new journal titles and other resources available from the University Library.

Ones useful for APL staff and students are :

New journals

Design Issues

This journal presents a scholarly forum for the history, theory, and criticism of design. It provokes inquiry into the cultural and intellectual role of non-architectural fields, from graphic design to industrial design. We have access volume one onwards.

New Resources

Architectural Digest (archive)

This is an extensive collection of the magazine from it’s first issue in 1920 to 2011. This title is published monthly by Condé Nast and has a strong reputation with architects and interior designers. Topics covered include information on architecture, arts, antiques, travel destinations, interior design and products.

Aerial Digimap 

This additional subscription through Digimap provides access to some of the highest quality aerial photography available for Great Britain. This is created and licensed by Getmapping plc. Use a range of interactive tools, allowing interrogation and analysis of the data online and offline.

You can also:

  • add annotations (text, point, lines and areas)
  • identify image capture date by clicking on the map
  • generate PDF, PNG or JPG files for printing
  • save maps to go back to or print later

Aerial Lidar

Lidar Digimap offers detailed Lidar data from the Environment Agency and presents a model of the earth’s surface.

Uses of Lidar data are highly varied, from use in the creation of visual effects for virtual reality and film projects to archaeology, forestry management, flood and pollution modelling.

De Gruyter

We have access to De Gruyter’s entire ebook collection until June 2019, after which we will buy access to the most well used titles. This currently covers over 27,000 titles related to numerous subjects including architecture and design. All titles are catalogued individually on Library Search.
