The Building Research Information Knowledgebase (BRIK), sponsored by AIA and the National Institute of Building Sciences, offers a members-only subscription feature that increases access to relevant research databases. In addition to the “BRIK Boutique” – selected, professionally-reviewed research highlighted by NAIA, NIBS, and BRIK partners – the knowledgebase now includes Art and Architecture Complete, the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, and the Sustainability Reference Center.

AIA and NIBS are offering members a free trial through September, after which members will be asked to sign up for the annual BRIK subscription for $40 per user.
