As students' prepare to continue their Spring semester remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library of Architecture Design and Construction's help desk has gone virtual. Even with the current state of uncertainty in most of our schedules, we are pleased to say that we are here to assist with your library needs.

We have now launched the chat feature on our home site. The staff here at LADC understand that this is a difficult time and we want to help by providing you the answers and/or direction that you are seeking. Our goal is to make remote resources more easily accessible. Although our physical doors will be closed, you can find a friendly help desk associate via chat Monday-Thursday from 8:00AM to 8:00PM, Friday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM, and Sunday from 1:00PM to 8:00PM.

Praxis: a journal of writing and building is a nonprofit journal published twice yearly by an all-volunteer staff*. Each issue contains articles relating to a common theme (i.e. a current design problem or topic). Praxis delves into its topics by addressing both theory & practice, and making connections in order to present an integrated view of architecture for academics and professionals; it attempts to "bridge the gap" between theory & practice.

*One of the editors, Benjamin Gilmartin, spoke at the APLA Fall Lecture series in August 2012.

 

Look up Praxis in the library catalog here: https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=cat07161a&site=eds-live&scope=site&AN=aul.4131516

Baseline, the International TypoGraphics Magazine, was originally published in 1979 as promotional material by Letraset. It made a reputation for itself because of its inclusion of objective editorial content. The subject matter is type and typography: According to its website, the purpose of the publication is "to reflect all aspects of type, including its design, history, use, and links to the graphic, art and craft scenes."
