Hi! I am Kathy Wu, the Government Information and Economics librarian. If you need any kind of help at all (from: "would you just show me how to find my way around the library?" to "I need help with this research..."), please don't hesitate to ask me. Email me to set up an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
To find ebooks, include the phrase "electronic resource" in a keyword search in Voyager. For example:
+environment? +water +"electronic resource"
(the ? is a wildcard character)
Handbook of Environmental Economics
Governance for the environment : new perspectives
Treasures of the earth : need, greed, and a sustainable future
Now or never : why we must act now to end climate change and create a sustainable future
Sustainable critical infrastructure systems : a framework for meeting 21st century imperatives : report of a workshop

If you need data to support your research, the libraries subscribe to a number of databases of data (numbers) rather than articles. See the whole list at Data & Statistics Databases.
Here are some good ones to start with:
Sustainability from EPA
U.S. Energy Information Administration (Search for data, analyses, reports, EIA programs cover data on coal, petruleum, natural renewable and nuclear energy)
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (search for publications and resources on clean energy)
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (The only federal lab that is dedicated to the research, development, commercialization and deployment of renewable energy and enegy efficiency technologies. Search for data, analyses and reportson renewable energy)
Sometimes it helps to see and hear a concept explained in a different way. If you're having trouble, check out the following DVDs, available in the Art & Music Library.
