Research/resource guide for students of ENV S 194 and ENV S 204, or those researching papers with environmental topics


Don't have a topic yet? 

1. Start by browsing for Topic Ideas in the resources collected on this page. Current news, issues databases, and online environmentalism sources can all be great sources of inspiration and researchable topics. 

2. Next, get background information and key terms by using sources from the subject encyclopedia and current issues databases on this page. I suggest starting with Reference for the basics.

Current News & Multimedia

Expand your scope when you are just getting started.  Even if your instructor would rather you use scholarly sources, these are great ways to keep up on what's going on and a great way to choose, understand, and narrow a topic.

The sources below are just a start. 

Current Issues Databases

Topic overviews and background

Ebook Databases

Reference books
