Basic Research Resources for City & Regional Planning

Basic Research Resources for City & Regional Planning is a selective bibliographic guide to basic city and regional planning reference sources in the Environmental Design Library and selected campus libraries at UC Berkeley. Although the guide reflects the American emphasis of the collection, international planning sources are listed as well. For additional assistance please consult the Environmental Design Library reference staff, 210 Wurster Hall.

UC Berkeley faculty, registered students, and staff who are off campus may use items marked UCB Only or UC Only by using The Library's off-campus access services.
