Trial: GREENR

Posted by Megan on May 22, 2011

The library currently has temporary trial access to GREENR, a Gale resource.

The trial is active until June 14, 2011.

A Gale blog offers this description:

GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources), is a new electronic resource from Gale, offering authoritative reference content in the area of the environment, energy and natural resources.

GREENR also offers:

*   Interactive maps, allowing users to browse by country or topic
*   Opportunities for forums, networking and open discussion, allowing students and teachers to participate in general forums or those designed for specific classes
*   Localization to highlight community resources, allowing libraries to  advertise their assets as well as upcoming local events
*   Web 2.0 tools to facilitate content portability and community building

The resource thus goes beyond providing citations; it brings together both popular and scholarly content—arranged thematically—in multiple formats (web sites, video, articles, images, maps, etc.)

One overarching thematic section deals with law and politics another deals with social systems.

Feedback is appreciated!
