Welcome to the Subject Guide for Geography and Environment

Geography is a wide-ranging subject, and that is reflected in the range and complexity of information resources that are relevant to you. In this guide the aim is to introduce you to some of the key resources for Geography. There are guides to other subjects available and you may find it useful to look at these when your work takes you into other disciplines, for example, economics, politics or social statistics.

Whether you're a student or a member of staff, you're very welcome to contact the subject librarian for Geography - who can give you expert advice on anything covered in this guide (and much more).
