Suggested Resources

Research Guides and Databases
These guides highlight the top Baker Library resources to begin research on a specific topic or area of interest.



Associations & Institutes
Trade, industry, and professional associations are lobbying and advocacy organizations, but they also serve as a forum to collect and disseminate information. They can be excellent sources for facts, statistics, reports, and can be a place to locate contacts to speak with about your research interest.

Many trade associations include data on their Web pages and in their publications. [Sometimes this is only available for a fee.]



Government agencies and nonprofit organizations are also good resources for data and reports on housing and construction.
