Climate Emergency: Resources

Highlighting resources available via the University of Exeter

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.
