Environmental Studies - Quick Links


Use LibrarySearch to search across the library's collections.  This is a great place to start, especially in an interdisciplinary field like Environmental Studies that pulls from many different fields of knowledge.  Because LibrarySearch is a very broad search, you will want to use specific terms so you don't receive too many irrelevant results

Specific Databases

Once you've done some searching in LibrarySearch, you may find that you need to use a specific database to find articles in a particular field.  These databases also allow you to narrow your results to fit your topic.

Background resources

These are good places to start if you need background information on a topic or concept.
