There are many ways to get involved in environmental programs on campus, but if you’re new to the field and want to learn more before joining one of the many efforts, there are resources through the UChicago Libraries that can help. You can also learn about sustainability development goals at SDG Academy, where you can find free, open educational resources from the world’s leading experts on sustainable development.
If you know of learning resources not featured here, we’d love to hear from you.

Environmental Science Resources

The print and online resources at the Crerar Library cover the scientific aspects of environmental science. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of environmental science, many of the print sources not directly related to science will be located in other libraries such as the Joseph Regenstein Library and the D’Angelo Law Library.

Environmental & Urban Studies Resources

The Library offers a research guide for the Environmental and Urban Studies major. As an interdisciplinary field, this guide cannot provide a comprehensive overview of all the resources that may be relevant to your work, but will provide helpful starting points for finding primary and secondary sources for many topics, including climate change, public health, and sustainability.

Weather and Climatology Resources

Weather and climatology encompasses a broad array of disciplines and a variety of information resources. While societal, economic, legal and policy issues related to weather and climate are important areas of study, the Library’s guide focuses on scientific and technical information resources, both current and historical.
