GreenFILE
Access: Freely available Internet database
Description:

Information covering all aspects of human impact on the environment. The scholarly, government, and general-interest titles include content on the environmental effects of individuals, corporations and local/national governments, and what can be done by each to minimize negative impact. Topics covered include global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more. GreenFILE is multidisciplinary by nature and draws on the connections between the environment and a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology.

The initial release of GreenFILE includes abstracting and indexing for more than 600 titles, including comprehensive coverage—from volume 1, issue 1 to present—for Bioscience (back to 1964), Conservation Biology (back to 1987), Journal of Ecology (back to 1913) and Journal of Environmental Planning & Management (back to 1948). The total number of records is approximately 295,000, and full text is provided for more than 4,600 records from open access titles.
