12Each April, Dominican College celebrates Earth Week to raise awareness of the environmental challenges impacting our planet.  Earth Week runs April 17th – 23rd, 2017.  The library has pulled together a display case featuring relevant books on sustainability, climate change, renewable energy and protecting the environment.  It is more critical than ever to get educated and involved on the environmental issues facing our planet!

Check out our Earth Week Bibliography featuring print and ebooks from our collection.

Below are some recommended environmental related library databases and online sources of note.

Library Databases

GreenFILE (EBSCOhost) is an excellent resource that draws on the connections between the environment and disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology.  Search this database for issues pertaining to global climate change, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling and more.

ProQuest Research Library: Science and Technology is another great database that covers agriculture and environmental sciences.
