Environmental Studies

Collection Statement

The environmental studies collection reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of Muir College with links to political science, sociology, ethnic studies, anthropology, evolutionary biology, earth science, and oceanography. As such, materials may be found in the Social Sciences and Humanities library, Biomedical Library, or Scripps Institute of Oceanography library. The SSH collection focuses mainly on the public policy issues related to the environment: environmental racism, the effects of globalization on the environment, and the documents of US and international government bodies. For more information on the hard science aspects, please contact the following bibliographers:

  • Peter Bruggeman, Scripps Institute of Oceanography (biological diversity, earth sciences, oceanography)
