Attached is a selected list of publications dealing with problems and
factors of industrial location. It has been prepared as a reference
list for State Planning and Development Agencies, Chambers of Commerce,
civic organizations, established or prospective businessmen, and
others interested in the principles underlying factory location.
Those engaged in assembling information on an area's industrial advan-
tages or in the appraisal of local factors affecting the selection
of a plant location may find it helpful.

The lisH includes both governmental and non-governmental publications
and cites a number of books and pamphlets which are out of print but
which are still useful. These may generally be consulted, however,
in the larger public libraries.
