Somin a Contributor to Award-Winning Publication

A publication to which Professor Ilya Somin is a contributor was selected recently for inclusion in the 2013 Outstanding References Sources List, an annual handpicked list from the Reference User Service Association (RUSA), a division of the American Library Association. The list is a compilation of the most noteworthy reference titles published in 2012.

The publication to which Somin contributed is The Encyclopedia of Housing, which contains an entry on "Blight" written by Somin. 

The winners are selected by the Outstanding Reference Sources Committee, which consists of a group of academic reviewers. Sponsored by RUSA’s Collection Development and Evaluation Section (CODES), the Outstanding Reference Sources Committee was established in 1958 to recommend the most outstanding reference publications for small and medium-sized public and academic libraries. The selected titles are valuable reference resources and are highly recommended for inclusion in any library’s collection.
