Links to useful web sites.
All the articles are on reserve at the School of Architecture
and Planning Library and in the Course Pack available at Queen City Imaging,
3100 Main St. University Heights, tel. 832 8100. It is desirable
to buy the coursepack so that you have ready access to the readings during
class. Each set of readings must be read by the date the
respective unit is scheduled (See Schedule). Examine your Course Pack
carefully when purchasing it to insure that all readings are included
and in their entirety. They may be out of order. Bring any omissions (unless
they are the fault of the copy center) to the attention of the instructor
at the beginning of the semester so any missing material can be provided.
