Environmental Studies


Because environmental issues are constantly changing, it's important to consult current periodical (journal, magazine & newspaper) literature in addition to books.

The best way to find articles is through our Databases & Indexes. We have a lot of databases that cover environmental topics. Some specific databases that may be useful in particular cases are listed on this page. Since environmental studies is an interdisciplinary topic, the database you choose will depend on your research topic.
