Books and magazines

A lot of good information can also be downloaded from http://www.inbar.int/outreach/main.htm
The TU Delft as a affiliate can log in to download all information in pdf, this is for students and TU Delft staff only. Contact me for the inlog data.

In the library of the TU Eindhoven/ architecture there is a lot of bamboo literature available

For further sources I refer to:
http://www.baardadegoede.wolters.nl/_theme/baardadegoede/frameset.asp?MID=192&DID=396
to execute a search on your own, especially Google Scholar is recommended.

CD ROMs
Several CD ROMS published by reliable sources (UNIDO, GTZ, NID, etcetera) are available in my cupboard at DfS which can be copied by students
