Some advice:

1. Librarians at your local university library have extensive training and experience helping people like yourself. The reference librarians LIKE to do this! It's the heart of their professional expertise. So go talk with them, or inquire online through the online catalog of your campus library.

2. You want to find the research literature on this topic. That's going to appear in article databases of various types that your library subscribes to. These are NOT available on the free Web. Look for PsycINFO, JSTOR, Sociological Abstracts, Dissertation Abstracts, and search the catalog on the phrase "annual review."

3. Search under both "cohousing" and "co-housing."

That's just for starters. I expect there will be several points at which you need more specific help. Talk to the experts in the library!
