GREENR - Database Trial

UMBC now has trial access to GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources).

GREENR is a new online resource that offers authoritative content on the development of emerging green technologies and discusses issues on the environment, sustainability and more.

Researchers view content in a way that resembles the Web, allowing them to easily browse to find answers. Other features include:

* Interactive maps, allowing users to browse by country or topic
* Contextual multimedia, customizable journals and news and refereed case studies

From topics like food safety to the impact of economic development on international relations, today's important environmental issues are shaping the future and reach far beyond the United States. Additionally, as green collar jobs grow, this resource supports students preparing for future careers in the industry.

Trial access runs through March 4, 2010.
