The Architecture Resource Center (ARC), a branch of the James White Library at Andrews University, is the official repository of the EDRA collection of materials on environmental design research.
The interdisciplinary collection holds books, trade journals, EDRA proceedings, documents, technical papers, and multimedia materials supporting research in the discipline of environment and behavior. The collection has been developed over the past 30 years and is the most comprehensive in the world.
From 1987 to 2016, the architecture librarian at Andrews prepared a new book display for the annual EDRA conference. These books were added to the collection and an annual bibliography of the materials was provided for EDRA members. The bibliographies give EDRA members the opportunity to order the materials for their personal or corporate libraries. As of 2016, the book display has been discontinued, but the annual bibliographies are maintained on the Andrews University Digital Commons.
The EDRA collection, bibliographies, and archives (materials donated by EDRA members) can be accessed by EDRA members and supporters worldwide on the Andrews University Digital Commons (digitalcommons.andrews.edu/edra).
