Where Can I Find These Materials on Campus?

Most books on Planned Communities can be found in one of three places on the College Park campus. The first is McKeldin Library, the main campus library. The shelves are browseable and most of the materials there can be checked out. The second is the Architecture Library, located on the first floor of the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. The shelves are also browseable and most of the materials there can be checked out. The third is Hornbake Library, which houses the campus's Archives and Manuscripts as well as its many special book collections. The materials in this library are non-circulating, which means that they must be read in the Special Collections Research Room in Hornbake, the Maryland Room. The Maryland Room has different hours than the library itself, so double-check them before you plan your visit. When you search the catalog, pay special attention to the location of each book, as they may be located in different libraries.
