Welcome Welcome

I'm Liz Clarke, the Academic Librarian for Environmental Sciences. Contact me if you need advice  / help with using Library resources to support your study, teaching or research, or if you would like to recommend a book / journal for our collections.


Library Search  Library Search is the one-stop shop for searching all of our collections - physical and electronic. It attempts to pull in data from every database we have access to, and is a good place to start a search.
Find Databases The Library subscribes to many databases, and to get the best results you'll need to search subject-specific databases individually (rather than through Library Search).
Find E‑Journals Each database we subscribe to includes content from many different journals. If you want to look at articles from just one, use the Find E-journals tool to see which journals we have access to.


More information on how to navigate these tools can be found in our SCI Guide to the Library
