In May 2019, the University declared an environment and climate emergency.
As part of its response, the University Library decided to create this Climate Emergency LibGuide in order to highlight useful research resources in the area.
This guide will be built with input from the University community, so please do get in touch if you'd like to recommend useful sources for inclusion in the guide, or to tell us about your research areas/challenges so that we can highlight content in those areas.
This guide is very much a work in progress and we look forward to working with the University community to develop it into a useful resource for all who are interested in climate and environment issues.
For updates on the Library's Climate Resources work - keep an eye on the Blog.
The Library Search services will help you discover books, journals, articles, audio visual material and more on your chosen topic. This is a good place to start when you are beginning to research a topic as you can draw on content from a variety of different sources.
Search for print and online books, journals, articles + more. Library Search LibGuide available for guidance.
Penryn Library Search
Search the print and streaming media collections that you have access to at Penryn campus.
You can search for broad topics like climate emergency or climate change and browse by date to see the latest publications, or run more focused searches on themes of topic relating to the climate and/or environment
Here are some sample searches - but try some some of your own.
If the Library doesn't have a print copy or ebook, tell us about it so we can add it to our collections for the University community to use.
