The aim of this guide is to help environmental and geographical science students find information in the library.  It is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather a starting point for your literature search.

A good place to begin

To thoroughly understand your topic start with:

  • general science dictionaries
  • subject dictionaries
  • encyclopedias 

 Dictionaries provide definitions of unfamiliar terms

Encyclopedias give explanations and succinct overviews of topics
