A. Anticipated Future Trends
There is a growing interest in the idea of sustainable cities and regional planning. In addition, the state of Michigan is very much focused on land use planning. More work will be done on urban areas in developing countries to meet a growing campus interest and commitment to urban areas in Africa and east Asia. Regardless of location, works that describe interesting or novel approaches in any part of the world may be collected. Finally, the legal issues revolving around planning issues, including citizen involvement in the process are bound to become more central to the field.
The burgeoning use of numeric and geographical data must also be of direct concern. Statistical sources and numeric data sets will be acquired. Adding research data is a potential step for this subject collection. For guidelines see http://libguides.lib.msu.edu/c.php?g=139267 .)
