Building Oregon is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services Technology Act, administered by the Oregon State Library.

OSU Libraries has built a mobile website that makes the University of Oregon’s Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest collection accessible to users on mobile devices. Building Oregon is a collection of approximately 20,000 images representing approximately 5,000 cultural properties from nearly 500 sites. Development of a mobile website has tremendous potential to educate and inspire tourists, educators, architecture buffs, Oregon citizens, students, and historians. Building Oregon allows people to search for buildings by location and to retrieve related images and information. OSU Libraries has released the application on GitHub.
