Resource of the week: Environment Complete

As this week is Climate Week, a national initiative aimed at “inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future”, it’s a good time to advertise a resource which specialises in environmental coverage.

What is it?
Environment Complete covers the areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, and affiliated areas of study.  The contents are more than 2.5 million records from thousands of domestic and international titles dating back over 100 years with over a thousand active core titles.

Why use it?
Environment Complete offers features and tools that are specifically designed to enhance the academic experience for undergraduates to researchers. It is available via EBSCO so if you are familiar with searching DISCOVER, you’ll already be aware of the search tools and refinements on offer.

More support specifically for Environment Complete can be found here, with tips to improve searches, advice about setting up a personal account so you can set up alerts to journal titles for example and how to make the best of the results displayed.
