Welcome to Urban Studies & Planning research at the UC San Diego Library! The tabs above will guide you to resources that are useful in general urban studies and planning research.
Some general notes:
1) I am on campus only on Mondays. If you need help with library issues, feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll respond as quickly as possible. Email is strongly preferred over voice messages.
2) You must be connected to the campus VPN to access the library's online resources from off-campus. Please see the Connect from Off-Campus instructions for more information. Be sure to select 2-Step Secured - Allthruucsd from the group drop-down menu while authenticating.
