Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Librarian consultation services, workshops, and instruction remain remote until further notice. For up-to-date information about onsite services, checking out materials, and study spaces, 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.
Recent titles in geology and geophysics. Please click on each title to view the resource. Searches for geology (here), geophysics (here), atmospheric science (here), and oceanography (here) provide access to lists of recent titles. There are 4 RSS feeds among the links below, so what is on display here is limited.
GeoRef is the most comprehensive database in the geosciences, and it grows by at least 80,000 references a year (you publish a lot!): journals, books, maps, and reports. The database also includes masters' and doctoral dissertations from US and Canadian universities. If you have a question about any subfield of the geosciences, this is probably your best starting point.
This ebook database is good. Its goal is to connect researchers to reference books in a new way — where the tables, charts, and figures are interactive and allow for notetaking. If you're looking for technical information about materials, instrumentation, or how things work in applied settings, this is a great place to go. Earth Sciences, Oil/Gas Engineering, Metals & Metallurgy, and Sustainable Energy & Development are all categories of note, but it's likely that information beyond just these will be helpful to you, too.
This database combines the ProQuest Agricultural & Environmental Science Collection, the Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts, Biological Science Database, and Earth, Atmospheric & Aquatic Science Database into a single search platform, with coverage from 1946-present and robust, human-curated indexing. It will be particularly useful to researchers performing advanced searches, with time-saving search limits by keyword, author, author institution, and abstract. Its full-text resources range from scholarly journals, trade and industry journals, and technical reports to magazines, conference proceedings, and government publications. Notable items within the database are the Water Resources Abstracts, EIS: Digest of Environmental Impact Statements, Environmental Engineering Abstracts, Pollution Abstracts, Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts, and Toxicology Abstracts.
The Treatises on Geochemistry, Geomorphology, and Geophysics from Elsevier. They are excellent reference resources that can really help a researcher dig into an overview of particular aspects of these fields.
"Yale University acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke,Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut. We honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples and nations and this land."
