Resource of the week: GreenFILE

The International Day for Biological Diversity is on May 22nd, with this year’s theme being Water and Biodiversity. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of a resource covering all aspects of human impact to the environment.

What is it?
GreenFILE is a collection of scholarly, government and general-interest titles includes content on global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more. The database provides links to more than 538 000 records, including Open Access full text for more than 5800 records.

Why use it?
GreenFILE draws on the connections between the environment and a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology so can be used by a variety of researchers with a broad ranging multidisciplinary interest in these areas.

More support specifically for GreenFILE can be found here, though it is one of the databases operated via EBSCO so if you’re already familiar with DISCOVER, this shouldn’t be too different.
