Subject Guide - Purpose of Guide

This resource guide encompasses many areas of the Earth Sciences. Other subject guides that may be useful to consult include: Chemistry, Computer Science, Environment , Geography, Government Information, Biology, Mathematics, Physics, and Public Affairs.

The aim of this guide is threefold:

  1. To outline the traditional research pathway beginning with dictionaries, encyclopedias, yearbooks, handbooks, etc.
  2. To develop a familiarity and vocabulary of definitions, concepts and reference sources.
  3. To serve as a resource for reference desk staff in leading users to appropriate library services, resources, and collections.

A final note, library guides provide a passive approach to reference services for undergraduate research inquiries. Consult the reference desk staff as appropriate.
