The Pittsburgh Architecture file consists of index cards containing information about specific buildings, architectural styles, areas, building types, houses, and other structures built in the Pittsburgh region during the 20th Century. Consulting this file with a librarian is the first step to finding information about a particular structure. The information on these index cards varies in degree of detail. Some cards refer to journal articles, citations in books, and the architect or the designer. Some cards indicate that there is a corresponding clippings file folder, called The Pittsburgh Architecture Information File, a collection of newspaper and magazine clippings and other ephemera. Carnegie Library art librarians collected these documents before the development of the Internet. This file includes rare and unique items not easily found in other places.
For further information about the Pittsburgh Architecture File, contact the Reference Services Department.
