The Library has trial access to Crop Protection Compendium (CPC) through May 15. CPC is a tool that compiles and presents scientific information on all aspects of global crop protection by integrating text, images, maps, and databases in a convenient portal.
CRC contains more than 26,000 datasheets and 3,500 detailed datasheets on crop pests, diseases, weeds, invasive plants, and natural enemies, as well as over 200 detailed crop datasheets. CPC also includes full text of over 25,000 relevant journal and conference articles.
We've recently licensed a new EBSCOhost database, Environment Complete. Environment Complete indexes about 2500 periodicals (scholarly journals and magazines) and contains full-text for about 1100 titles covering a wide variety of environmental topics.
Environment Complete is a great first database to try for those new to researching environmental topics, and it can be useful for more advanced researchers, too.
How does Environment Complete compare to our other environment-themed databases?
If you have questions about these or other databases, please contact a librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by and see us at the reference desk!

The DMPTool will be unavailable on Sunday March 15, 2015, from 8:00am until 10:00am (PDT), due to system maintenance. During this time, the entire website will be unavailable, so users will not be able to log in or view the unrestricted pages of the website. We apologize for the inconvenience.
