Begin searching at the Library welcome page, and select the Peer Reviewed box. 

In the search box, begin a topic search. For example:

  • globalization "environmental gains"
  • globalization "environmental gains/multiculturalism" diversity
  • globalization "negative environmental effects"
  • globalization "negative environmental effects/multiculturalism" diversity 

Be sure to use the quotation marks as shown; they tell the database to search words together as a phrase.

Once articles have been retrieved, search results can be refined by selecting the various limiters on the left side of the page. For example, try limiting the results by publication date, geography, subject (see below), and more. 

Search tip: When browsing results, look at subject tags within the article citations; they can often provide additional search terms and phrases. 

Westlaw is another resource of information. From the Library homepage, select the All Databases link.

Scroll down to Westlaw Campus Research and click on that. All databases are listed alphabetically.

Select Regulations

Scroll down to the field By Topic and select Environmental Law to browse Federal and State regulations.  

You may also search News

Choose Energy & Environment in the News by Topic field.

Search by keyword or phrase
