About This Guide

Owen Science and Engineering Library contains many resources for students and faculty interested in the environmental sciences. Since this is an interdisciplinary subject, resources can be found with those of other areas such as ecology, energy, engineering, health, pollution and water. The purpose of this subject guide is to alert visitors to some of the resources available at Owen Library and online. If you have any questions not answered on the WSU Libraries website, or would like to request a book, journal, conference proceeding, etc. on subjects related to this area, please contact the subject librarian.
