The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Pyle, Lizbeth A.

The second in a series of papers reporting on the urbanization process in rural areas, this 1981 article reports on a study of rural landowners in Olmsted County and analyzes the characteristics of those who sell their property for conversion, why they sell, and how they differ from those who don't sell.
