Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) September 23, 2007
A search service offered by BibliOZ The Book Search Wizard for finding out-of-print, collectible and hard-to-find books has been launched specifically for professionals in the architectural and engineering sectors.
Developed by BiblioQuest International, the portal page gives architects, engineers, academics and support staff privileged access to the online search engine, BibliOZ The Book Search Wizard, featuring more than 40 million books from thousands of technical, antiquarian and specialist bookdealers worldwide.
BiblioQuest Director Paul McShane says that the architectural profession frequently draws on historical and cultural inspiration and the BibliOZ database has many classic texts and cross-cultural resources for researchers.
"Titles such as, Statz's's The Gothic Model Book - Architecture of the Middle Ages with its Associated Arts, Andre Paccard's Traditional Islamic Craft in Morroccan Architectecture and James Fergusson's 3-volume A History of Architecture in All Countries from the Earliest Times to the Present Day published in the 1860s are some examples.
"More than most professions, architecture also has its iconic individuals who shape the patterns of our landscape through their influence for generations.
"Because architectural books are often lavishly illustrated and produced by art-house publishers they invariably did not have large print runs, which means they are are not commonplace or generally available in the secondhand book market, hence many people require assistance to find them.
Being an Australian-based website there is a rich vein of antipodean material such as Hardy Wilson's Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania and works by or about Australian architects such as Peter Blake's Architecture for the New World - The Work of Harry Seidler

"Preferred Professional Clients can also access a vast topic menu and also gains selective access to a general library of bibliographies of out-of-print, collectable and technical books, monographs, periodicals and charts," he said.
"Aside from this special access to the BibliOZ.com online service, Preferred Professional Clients can instead opt to use BiblioQuest's telephone customer service centre," concluded McShane.
