The UCR Library collects resources in environmental engineering supporting both coursework and research conducted by our students and faculty. This is a naturally interdisciplinary topic so resources from engineering, geosciences, and chemistry are commonly used. We offer subject-specific and general research educational services at the library and provide access to information from the UC Libraries System and beyond.

Conducting Research

Books & Articles

Books are useful for getting a broad introduction or background information for topics in environmental engineering. Search by topic keywords in the UCR catalog or the Melvyl (UC) catalog or browse the Knovel Environmental Engineering Books.

Scholarly articles are carefully evaluated (peer-reviewed) by subject experts to provide reliable and credible information. Locate articles by searching in the environmental engineering databases. The most popular databases are listed on this page.


Most environmental engineering journals are purchased for the entire UC Libraries system and can be browsed in in the UC Journal Finder.  Use the UCR catalog to find journals on campus.
