A recently published reference work in the field of home and housing is now available to UvA students and staff.

The UvA now has online access to the International Encyclopedia of Housing and Home via Elsevier’s ScienceDirect. This reference work, which has recently been published, contains over 500 detailed articles ordered alphabetically, but each is cross-referenced and attached to a thematic category. It is based on studies in the fields of economics and financial management, law, psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography and architecture. Several UvA researchers have contributed to it.
