Spatial planning

Subject guide - spatial planning


In Summon@BTH you search simultaneously for books, articles, conferences and theses, which you find on the bookshelves and in the databases we subscribe to.


Books and reports

As a student of spatial planning, you will find literature from many different disciplines – architecture, planning, construction, sociology, environment, etc. Because of this, you often have to search Summon first to find the shelves you are looking for.

Online reports from Swedish government agencies and organizations can be found in the Swedish union library catalogue LIBRIS.
