The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library holds many collections which are related to the topic of Princeton University Architecture. Most notable among these are the Department of Grounds and Buildings Subject Files (AC110). The originals of many of the documents in the Robert J. Clark Papers can be found here, and the collection also seems to have served as the inspiration for Clark's filing system.

Other useful sources pertaining to campus architectural history are the Historical Photograph Collection: Grounds and Buildings Series, the Office of Physical Planning Records, the Office of the President Records, and the Historical Subject Files. Additionally, numerous books have been written about various aspects of Princeton's campus, ranging from Howard Crosby Butler's broad 1905 survey, Princeton: a Typical American University Town and its Architecture to the highly specific The Gargoyles of Princeton University: A Grotesque Tour of the Campus written by Laurel Masten Cantor in 1983.
