Building Technology Heritage Library
The Building Technology Heritage Library (BTHL) is primarily a collection of American and Canadian, pre-1964
architectural trade catalogs, house plan books, and technical building guides. Trade catalogs are an important
primary source to document past design and construction practices. These materials can aid in the preservation
and conservation of older structures as well as other research goals.

Preservation Library from PreservationDirectory.com
This is a repository of historic preservation and building restoration publications, reports, and articles that provide
expert guidance for the rehabilitation and preservation of historic structures, as well as links to essential policy
and legal documents that pertain to historic preservation and cultural resource management.

Preservation Briefs from the National Park Service, Technical Preservation Services
