Earth & Environmental Science

Some of these resources are Lab-only and will require Remote Access.

Key Resources

    • The catalog and index to the collections of the National Agricultural Library, as well as a primary public source for world-wide access to agricultural information.
  • BioOne
    • A global, not-for-profit collaboration bringing together scientific societies, publishers, and libraries to provide access to critical, peer-reviewed research in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences.
  • LANL Electronic Public Reading Room (EPRR)
    • Contains LANL documents required for compliance with environmental regulations and permits. Other documents that deal with environmental issues are included in EPRR.
  • National Service Center for Environmental Publications
    • EPA's premiere publications resource, features more than 7,000 print publications and 26,000 digital titles, all of which are available free of charge to search and retrieve, download, print and/or order.
  • ProQuest Earth Science Collection
    • Geosciences, geochemistry, geophysics - journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports and theses going back to 1693.
    • The SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant. The ADS maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 9.4 million records: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics, and arXiv e-prints
  • USGS Publications Warehouse
    • Publications from the United States Geological Survey


  • Encyclopedia of Earth
    • An electronic reference about the Earth, its natural environments, and their interaction with society. The EoE is a free, expert-reviewed collection of content contributed by scholars, professionals, educators, practitioners and other experts who collaborate and review each other's work. The content is presented in a style intended to be useful to students, educators, scholars, professionals, as well as to the general public.
  • MIT OpenCourseWare in Earth Sciences
    • Free online course materials from MIT


Data Sources

  • DataONEpedia
    • Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is the foundation of new innovative environmental science through a distributed framework and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that meets the needs of science and society for open, persistent, robust, and secure access to well-described and easily discovered Earth observational data.
  • EarthChem
    • EarthChem is a community-driven effort to facilitate the preservation, discovery, access and visualization of the widest and richest geochemical datasets. EarthChem operates the EarthChem Portal to provide access to geochemical data in distributed databases, topical data collections such as the Deep Lithosphere Dataset, and the Geochemical Resource library as a repository for geochemical datasets and relevant digital objects.
  • National Climatic Data Center
    • NCDC is the world's largest active archive of weather data. NCDC produces numerous climate publications and responds to data requests from all over the world.
  • USGS EROS Data Center
    • Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center is a remotely sensed data management, systems development, and research field center for the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Climate and Land Use Change Mission Area.
