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.
