Multi-disciplinary databases (cover a lot of different subjects, climate change and the environmnent):

  • Academic Search Complete
  • Proquest
  • Project Muse
  • SAGE Journals Online
  • ScienceDirect

Subject-specific databases:

  • Environmental Studies and Policy Collection
  • GeoScienceWorld
  • GreenFILE
  • Literature Resource Center (Literature)
  • Political Science

In choosing one of the subject-specific databases, think about the focus of your topic. If you're studying the emotional and psychological effects of climate change, PsycINFO would be a good database to try. If you're writing about climate fiction, then try Literature Resource Center.
