APA just released a valuable new research tool for members: an index to conference proceedings in the library's E-book Collection. Now it's easy to locate, borrow, and read what Richard Babcock, Catherine Bauer, Edward Bennet, Alfred Bettman, Stuart Chapin, Charles Merriam, Lewis Mumford, John Nolan, Frederick Law Olmsted, and other great planners said at national planning conferences hosted by APA and its predecessor organizations, as far back as 1909. Most of these proceedings have never before existed in digital form, and even physical copies are rare, making this a unique and important member benefit.



The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning promotes education, research, service and outreach in the United States and throughout the world by seeking to:

  • recognize diverse needs and interests in planning;
  • improve and enhance the accreditation process, and;
  • strengthen the role of planning education in colleges and universities through publications, conferences, and community engagement;
  • extend planning beyond the classroom into the world of practice.
