URPL 408: Find Books

For student's in Dr. Ali's Urban and Regional Planning Seminar course. Cross listed with GEOG 408.

Book Search

While you're more likely to use articles in your research, books are still useful when looking at larger-picture issues, background information, history, or trends!

In order to find books on any desired topic, use the search box below. This is the same search box on our library homepage. Search in SU Libraries, all UM System Libraries, or libraries worldwide. Most of the books that you find owned by another University of Maryland System school can be ordered - for free! - and delivered to the SU Library for your use.  Email me and I can show you how to request these books.

You can also use this search to find other types of sources like journal articles and images.

A call number will look something like this:
