GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources) is a new, authoritative online resource that focuses on the academic study of sustainability and the environment.

bnaThe Library has added three Bureau of National Affairs online resources to it’s collection:

Environment Reporter : “This multi-part [U.S. focused] environmental resource keeps you fully up to date on rapidly changing developments in courts, Congress, federal agencies, state legislatures, industry, and environmental organizations.”

International Environment Reporter : “Know and understand environmental news, laws, regulations, and policies—in all major industrialized and developing nations, as well as international governmental and nongovernmental organizations.”

Environment & Safety Library : “The Library combines powerful, easy-to-use, continuously updated compliance tools with a research collection of [mostly U.S.] federal and state laws, regulations, and documents.” NOTE -we do not have access to grayed-out text.


Beginning next week, students can drop in to the Chapman Learning Commons for “one-on-one help with the planning and research stages of course assignments. Students receive research assistance in a comfortable atmosphere; help mapping out a customized research strategy for assignments; and referral to library experts in their subject area. Research Rescue volunteers are UBC grad students.”
