GeoScience Resources

Ingram Library Resources for GeoScience students and faculty


Students at UWG have access to over 68,000 journals in more than 300 databases.  Geoscience students can find relevant trade, news, and peer-reviewed articles in the subject specific databases.  Look in the general databases for popular magazines, newspaper, and other low-level materials that will give you a broad overlook of your topic.

Consider other disciplines that may cover your topic.  Depending on the topic, you may benefit from databases that cover other areas, like business or political science.  Review our list of other discipline specific databases to make sure you hit everything relevant.
