Sustainability at USF St. Petersburg

Getting Started with Research

Want to know more about sustainability? The library is a great place to start when you want to learn about a new subject for your own interest or for classes. We have basic information in the form of reference resources (more reliable than some of the stuff you find on google), books and articles that get more into detail, and best of all librarians that can help you navigate all of the resources. This page will get you started but if you have questions be sure to reach out to a librarian. You can come to the front desk, call us at 727 873-4405, email one of us directly or use our online chat
