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) Absent new developments, the library will be open regular hours for Fall 2021. Masks are required at all times indoors.

2) For the fall quarter, I will be on campus only on Mondays. If you need help with library issues, feel free to contact me via email at and I'll respond as quickly as possible. Email is strongly preferred over voice messages.

3) 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.
