ASL Special Collections: access to materials, and policies and procedures


The ASL Special Collections section at the UNLV Architecture Studies Library (ASL) is housed in a secure area within the Library. Items located in ASL Special Collections include the Local Planning Materials collection, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Nevada Awards Archive, and the Architects Collection.

Although a Library Graduate Assistant generally staffs this facility 20 hours per week [during the fall and spring academic semesters], access to the collection is limited. Those patrons wishing to utilize the materials held in ASL Special Collections may request access at the ASL Service Desk. Requests will be granted on a staff-available basis. However, if patrons are in need of specific materials, they may request that staff pull the items and hold them at the ASL Service Desk. All items in ASL Special Collections are non-circulating; therefore, they are usually not allowed to leave the Architecture Studies Library.


Most of the collection may be copied within the ASL, according to posted copyright regulations. Patrons are strongly urged to use care when copying fragile or old materials. The Architecture Studies Library staff is available to reproduce most material for patrons, or for items that have an unusual or special format. Items may be protected under Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S. Code).

Prices for our reproduction services are listed below. Please remember, these prices are general guidelines, and may change at any time. Special services or unusual requests may incur additional costs. All services totaling more than fifteen dollars ($15) will require prepayment by check. Educational institutions may qualify for discounts on certain services. For price quotes or to inquire about services not listed, please email [].

Additionally, in the event that mailing is required, a shipping and handling fee will be charged to cover the cost of postage and mailing supplies. Prices are for shipping items that will fit in one mailing tube or one padded bubble mailer. If your request requires that your items be shipped in multiple containers, additional shipping charges may apply.
