The Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals covers architecture, urban design, historic preservation, and urban planning history. It offers access to 2,500 international journals and contains nearly 600,000 citations dating to the mid-18th century. It indexes the international scholarly and popular periodical literature as well as the publications of professional associations, U.S. state and regional periodicals, and the major serial publications on architecture and design of Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Australia.
