Welcome to the guide for Urban Studies and Urban Planning!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in the field of Urban Planning. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in the Urban Studies and Urban Planning and related fields.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to the field of Urban Planning. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.

Monique Andrews

Librarian Liaison for the department of Urban Studies and Urban Planning

The guide consists of several pages (tabs) detailing our resources in these areas. Please explore and feel free to contact me with any suggestions that would improve this service.
