Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (Trial)

UMBC now has a one-year trial of the UNESCO Encyclopedia of Live Support Systems (EOLSS) [select Access for Institutions in the left column to get started]. The EOLSS is an integrated compendium of twenty encyclopedias. It attempts to forge pathways between disciplines in order to show their interdependence and helps foster the transdisciplinary aspects of the relationship between nature and human society. It deals in detail with interdisciplinary and trandiscplinary subjects, but it is also disciplinary as each major core subject is covered in great depth, by world experts.

Topics are divided into the following categories:
Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Mathematical Sciences
Biological, Physiological and Health Sciences
Tropical Biology and Conservation Management
Land Use, Land Cover and Soil Sciences
Social Sciences and Humanities
Physical Sciences, Engineering and Technology resources
Control Systems, Robotics and Automation
Chemical Sciences Engineering and Technology Resources
Water Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources
Energy Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources
Environmental and Ecological Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources
Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources
