Books About Sustainability

We have many books in our collection that may be useful for projects relating to sustainability.

Some useful Library of Congress Classification Subject headings include:

Sustainable agriculture    Sustainable development
Environmental engineering    Sustainable forestry
Ecotourism   Environmentalism   Green movement

You may also find it quite helpful to enter "Environmental aspects" as a subject term in our catalog and then enter the location or topic that you are interested in as a keyword.

Different authors and organizations may use different terms to describe the same phenomena.

         "climate change" or "global warming"
         "environmental movement" or "green movement"

As such, it is a good idea to experiment with using several different words or phrases while you are searching. You can usually do this simply by putting "OR" between the relevant phrases: a search for "climate change" OR "global warming" will retrieve results that have either (or both) of these phrases.

Below are some examples of books from the collection about sustainability.
