The City Planning and Landscape Architecture collection is now located at the Isaac Funk Family Library (Funk Library or Funk ACES Library, for short). The Library is named after the Issac and Cassandra Funk family. Their extremely generous support helped to make the ACES Library what it is today. The current Funk ACES Library was officially opened in August 2001.
The library occupies the 2-5th floor of the ACES Library, Information, and Alumni Center (LIAC), an octagonal-shaped brick building. There are three photocopy machines available for public use, one on each of the floors: second, third, and fourth floor. They are all located on the north side of the building next to a conference room.
Throughout Funk ACES Library, computers are available at the circular kiosks. The square tables with four chairs around them are all internet ready. All you need to do is have a laptop and an ethernet cable and you are ready to get online. Wireless laptop access is available throughout Funk ACES Library.
The second floor of the ACES Library is the base of its operations. All the library offices are located here, as well as the Circulation Desk and the Reference Desk. The CPLA Reference & Resource Center lives on the northwest side. CPLA reference books are shelved here. Also there are two computers dedicated to a scanner. Software includes Adobe Acrobat Professional and Adobe Photoshop Elements. Also, newly arrive CPLA books can be found on the southwest side in the New Books area. They are separate from ACES new books, which are in the same area.
The third floor of the ACES Library holds part of the main collection. There are also several group study rooms available on this floor.
The fourth floor of the ACES Library hold the remaining portion of our main collections. It also holds the compact shelving area, which has various materials.
The fifth floor of the ACES Library holds a large instructional laboratory. The ACES Library will from time to time have classes up in the laboratory. Simply click on one of the light blue colored areas to see a photograph of that area.
