Community and Regional Planning: Books

Google Books

Google Books is an excellent tool for perusing the contents of millions of books. If the book is out of copyright, or the publisher has given permission, you'll be able to see a preview of the book, and in some cases the entire text. If it's in the public domain, you're free to download a PDF copy.

Google Book Search

Citing Sources

A citation is a record of where you encountered a certain idea. Citing your sources helps other scholars track down resources they find of interest. Proper citation helps us all build on our knowledge.

Finding Books

WNCLN Library Catalog
The catalog provides access to the combined library holdings of Appalachian State University, UNC-Asheville, and Western Carolina University.
