Sustainability Studies: Research Help

Welcome to the Sustainability Studies Research Guide!

This guide is to help you get a jumpstart on Sustainability Studies Research by giving an overview of what Sustainability Studies Resources are available in the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them.


Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to Sustainability Studies:

Journals and Periodicals

Although many of the journals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go. Below is a list of journals we have in print (and sometimes also in electronic formats.) See titles for links to each journal. (Note: Print copies of journals are housed on the first floor of Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)

Books and Ebooks

Here at Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books.
