Suggested article Databases
EBSCO EDS is an online research tool that "pulls together" many external sources so that they can be explorer using a single search box . In other words, rather than searching several sources, you can do and EDS search and get a single list of results coming from various sources. In fact, you could think of EDS as the Library's version of Google.
Urban studies abstracts
This bibliographic research database is essential to the study of cities and regions. It covers subjects of key relevance to the discipline including urban affairs, community development and urban history.
GreenFILE offers well-researched information covering all aspects of human impact to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government and general-interest titles includes content on the environmental effects of individuals, corporations and local/national governments, and what can be done at each level to minimize these effects. Multidisciplinary by nature, GreenFILE draws on the connections between the environment and a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology. Topics covered include global climate change, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more.
Web of Science (on-site access only)
Web of Science is a citation index that provides a comprehensive citation search. It gives access to multiple databases that reference cross-disciplinary research, which allows for in-depth exploration of specialized sub-fields within an academic or scientific discipline.
Search publications from IEEE, transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings.
Articles from scholarly journals published by Elsevier. Includes physical sciences and engineering, life sciences, health sciences, social sciences and humanities.
Articles from scholarly journals published by Springer. Covers astronomy, biomedical sciences, business and management, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences & geography, economics, energy, engineering, environmental sciences, law, materials, medicine, phylosophy, physics, social sciences and statistics.
