I’m work­ing on my final project for the tech­ni­cal writ­ing course, which is a com­par­i­son of cohous­ing devel­op­ments to sin­gle-fam­i­ly and more tra­di­tion­al mul­ti-fam­i­ly hous­ing. I’m find­ing it dif­fi­cult to find any of the books I want to use as ref­er­ences in the library (school or two coun­ties). Do any of you who are local hap­pen to have books on the sub­ject? Copies of Com­mu­ni­ties mag­a­zine, maybe? I’d appre­ci­ate a chance to look at such things rather than need­ing to buy them via Ama­zon!

    Sor­ry about that. For inter­views with cohousers on key top­ics, watch the doc­u­men­tary “Voic­es of Cohous­ing. Rebuild­ing vil­lages in the city”, award win­ner at the 34th Eko­top­film fes­ti­val 2007 and nom­i­nat­ed at 9th Gold Pan­da Awards. Eas­i­ly acces­si­ble online Enjoy!

    You could try using Inter­Loan through your library. That’s where you can order books in from oth­er libraries if your own one does­n’t have it. School libraries don’t usu­al­ly charge for this ser­vice.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Much of the infor­ma­tion on Cohous­ing is on the Inter­net. The very nov­el­ty of cohous­ing in most parts of the coun­try ensure loads of blogs and news­groups.

    Cre­ate an Alert using google or yahoo with the term cohousing–you’ll get loads of use­ful links and can fol­low up on the ones you like.

    Good luck.
