Architecture Capstone & Senior Project: Your Project

Statistics, information & scholarly articles for construction and design capstones

Your Project

You will be doing a semester long research project for your capstone. You will most likely be looking for the following kinds of resources:

  • Scholarly or research articles from professional journals
  • Data or statistics
  • Papers, presentations or information from national professional organizations

In order to find these kinds of resources, you'll need to use every available resource at hand: the Internet, Google, library databases, people in the field and possibly even consulting your librarian. This guide will give you a good starting place to find most of this information.

Where to Start

WhyYou can start with any of the pages in the guide, but it's often helpful to start searching a database, whether it's ProQuest or Google. Why?
Because there are so many articles found in these resources (think millions and millions) that you are 1) likely to find something on your topic and 2) finding something can lead you to finding more resources, finding the industry or commonly-used terms or keywords for your topic and 3)it's a place to start.
If you aren't sure how to start, you can go right to the Find Articles tab and use the top database ProQuest to get started quickly.
