Q: Where can I find the architectural plans for the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library?
Answered by: Laura Sider

Regretfully, the Beinecke Library does not have scans of its architectural plans available online. The originals are held by another archival repository, the Manuscripts and Archives Department of Yale University. To ask them about the possibility of getting copies of these, please contact them at: mssa.assist@yale.edu

 In the meantime, there are several plans published online here:

There is a series of construction photographs here:

(Click on "See all images".)

This page from the Beinecke web site includes links to an video tour and an audio tour by the Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, and other information: http://www.library.yale.edu/beinecke/brblinfo/brblslides.html
