The Encyclopedia of Housing
The Encyclopedia of Housing responds
to the need for integration among the many disciplines engaged
in housing research. Its contributors represent more than
a dozen disciplines and work in widely different settings:
a range of academic departments, a variety of public agencies
at the federal and local levels, nonprofit organizations,
and several private firms. This broad spectrum results from
a deliberate decision to cast a wide net in order to capture
the diversity and scope of housing.
Housing Information Gateway
This site serves as a gateway, providing
information on and links to housing resources on the Internet.
It is an elaboration of The Encyclopedia of Housing which
offers essays on issues ranging from Abandonment to Zoning.
Directory of Housing Researchers
This directory contains address information
for housing researchers, practitioners and others interested
in housing. It can be searched by name or keywords describing
expertise and interests.
This database contains references
