I got a question today from someone doing research on the basics of urban planning. Here are some resources that I would recommend for researching the topic of urban planning, city planning, or urban renewal.
Gale Virtual Reference Library (http://www.library.ohiou.edu/find/dictencyc.html , first link at the top of that page) When the Database opens, just search for urban planning, and you get some good encyclopedia articles from multiple sources.
Journals, magazines, and trade publications
The links below will take you to the record in Alice, our online catalog, where you will need to open the individual journals and search for topics, or simply browse issues. You might also search in the publications for things like “trends”.
- Journal of Urban Planning and Development
- Landscape and Urban Planning
- Journal of Urban Design
- Environment and Planning
- International Journal of Urban and Regional Research
- International Planning Studies
Associations and other websites
