City Planning and Landscape Architecture Collection

The City Planning and Landscape Architecture Collection serves the Departments of Urban & Regional Planning and Landscape Architecture, as well as the students and faculty in various disciplines across the University of Illinois. Considered one of the most interdisciplinary collections in the Library, the unit collects in the areas of land-use policy, environmental planning and law, waste management, low-cost community housing and community services, demographics, historic preservation, landscape design, ecology, third-world planning issues, local government, tourism, and many other facets of city planning and landscape architecture.

The collection is particularly well-known for its historical holdings. The landscape architecture component of the collection began with the founding of the University of Illinois in 1867; the city planning component began in 1913, when the country's first professor of city planning, Charles M. Robinson, joined the faculty. Today, the collection contains more than 150,000 volumes, more than 20,000 of which can be found in the Isaac Funk Family Library after being relocated from Mumford Hall and more than 100,000 of which can be found in the main bookstacks or Rare Book and Special Collections Library. Non-print materials, such as slide sets and videocassettes, can be found in the Undergraduate Library Media Center.
