This guide contains information about databases, data resources, and books of interest to members of the Earth & Planetary Sciences Department at Yale.

COVID-19 Updates

Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now, many library locations have opened for limited hours. Members of the Yale community have a choice between contactless and mediated checkouts, and many study spaces are available. Librarian consultation services, workshops, and instruction remain remote until further notice. 

For up-to-date information, please visit the Library's statement on COVID-19.

This guide contains important information about connecting to a variety of library resources. In addition to the content on the guide, let me stress:

  • QuickSearch Books+ has faceted searching. If you are only looking for online content, after searching, please select "Online" under format. The Library has made significant updates to QuickSearch to facilitate users who need online-only materials.
  • Library staff are still here to support you in your teaching, learning, and research. Please contact me using the information on my profile (below). You may email or schedule a Zoom appointment.
  • The Yale University Library is transitioning from VPN-mediated access to a tool called "EZProxy" to help you access materials more seamlessly. Please visit this site for questions about the new authentication system, but for the majority of our online resources, you will now be sent to an authentication screen and you will not need to use VPN.

We have a purchase request form if you need something that is not currently available.

Welcome
