Q. Where can I find good online resources concerning the environment?
One good source are the magazine, journal and newspaper articles featured in several databases from Gale and Ebsco found on the Alabama Virtual Library (AVL). Another good AVL source is the "Gale Environmental Encyclopedia, 4th edition." This two volume set provides in-depth, worldwide coverage of environmental issues. The articles are written in a nontechnical style and provide current status, analysis and suggested solutions whenever possible. This is an excellent source for high-school and junior college students writing reports on contemporary environmental topics.
