Hello Friends,   


Please join the CRC as we celebrate the opening of the Center for Regional Change Ted K. Bradshaw Resource Library on May 13th. The majority of the books in the library were donated by the Bradshaw family and represent those books found in the late Dr. Ted Bradshaw's personal library.

The library includes 13 subjects that all relate to community development, community change, and planning in both the urban and the rural context. Additionally, the library includes over 500 maps and a variety of magazines and publications dealing with a range of issues related to regional change.

If you  have any questions or would like to access the resources within this library please don't hesitate to contact Michael Johnson.
