Princeton Primers in Climate

Princeton Primers in Climate is a series of short, authoritative books that explain the state of the art in climate-science research. These primers reveal the physical workings of the global climate system with accessibility and detail. Princeton Primers in Climate is the ideal first place to turn to get the essential facts, presented with uncompromising clarity, and to begin further investigation--in the library or wherever your summer travels take you.

All seven titles are available at the Earth Sciences and Map Library in McCone Hall including: Paleoclimate; Climate and Ecosystems; Planetary Climates; Climate and the Oceans; the Cryosphere; Atmosphere, Clouds and Climate; and the Global Carbon Cycle. Four more titles are forthcoming.

Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry

"Understanding every living process-from physiology, to immunology, and genetics-is impossible without a grasp on the basic chemistry that provides its underpinning.  Each article in the work provides an up-to-date snapshot of a given biological chemistry topic, written by experts, as well as suggestions for further readings for students and researcher wishing to go into greater depth."

Check out the 4-volume Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry, Second Edition.

Data Management Planning Tool version 2 released

DMPTool2

A new version of the free Data Management Planning Tool (DMPTool2) has been released by the California Digital Library (CDL) and its partners. DMPTool2 guides researchers through the process of creating data management plans to fulfill the requirements of funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The new version of the tool allows researchers to more easily:

  • collaborate and share with colleagues
  • get help and suggestions relating to the particular requirements of each funder
  • see additional data management resources that are specific to their institution.

For questions about the DMPTool2 or about other data management tools and services available to UC Berkeley researchers, please see our page on Scientific Data Services or contact data-consult@lists.berkeley.edu.
