This is a fairly extensive architecture database maintained at the University of Washington Libraries. It seems useful to be able to bring in these IDs, especially for West Coast architects, buildings and firms that are less well-covered by other sources. Certainstars (talk) 20:48, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
