The Frances Loeb Library has a wide array of material on Josep Lluis Sert, including primary source material, books, articles, and images.
For primary material The Sert Collection, housed in the Special Collections Department, includes thousands of drawings and plans related to his work as an architect and urban designer, as well as substantial files of correspondence, manuscript material, photographs and slides. The collection’s contents also document his activities as a writer and lecturer and his involvement in professional and civic organizations. See the online finding aid for this collection for a complete description of holdings. See the Special Collections department website for more information on using this material.
Books by and about Sert in the Frances Loeb Library can be located through the HOLLIS catalog by doing a search on Jose Luis Sert,
To locate information on individual buildings, several approaches can be taken:
- Search HOLLIS with the building name (this may bring back records of digitized images as well as books).See this example for Peabody Terrace.
- Expand your search to books on Harvard University buildings, for example, Bainbridge Bunting's "Harvard: an architectural history", or the more recent "Harvard University, an architectural tour", by Douglas Shand-Tucci.
- Search the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals for articles on the specific building (Harvard ID and PIN required).
