Introduction and Purpose

Welcome to the Environmental Sciences Information Blog at Princeton University! This blog is for anyone and everyone, but especially those in academia and particularly at Princeton.

Interest in regards to the environment continues to grow, and reliable, scientific-based information and research is more germane than ever.

With so many resources and so much information becoming available on the Web, I have decided to try to collect the most useful websites and news services leading to and providing this knowledge. However, I’ll not restrict myself to web-based information. I will announce new databases, perhaps discuss and compare existing databases. I will announce new journals relevant for environmental studies, especially if they are new subscriptions. I will accumulate news resources. I will keep tabs on the plight of the EPA Libraries.

I will welcome comments, questions and suggestions.
