Hello, and welcome to the Imperial College Library blog for Environmental Technology. This blog should help you keep informed about library news, new resources, and other interesting information. You can either subscribe to the RSS feed, or if you prefer to get information by email, you can subscribe here.

If you’re a new student, then you might like to visit the 6 steps for new students section of the library website, where you can find all the information you need to start using the library.

If you’re a returning student or member of staff, you will notice some changes here in the Central Library. Over the summer, we’ve re-organised the books into a single sequence. You can read more about the project on the library website. This means that most books are now in a new location, as follows:

  • Level 2: 000 – 532
  • Level 4: 533 – 599
  • Level 5: 600 – 999

Some useful classmarks are:

    303.8 – Research Methods
    330.13 – Environmental Impact Assessment
    333.7 – Environmental economics
    333.707 – Environmental reports
    333.79 – Energy Policy
    339.5 – Environmental policy
    347.24 – Environmental Law
    363.738 – Climate change
    574.3 – Ecology
    614.71 – Air pollution
    620.9 – Renewable energy
    628.5 – Environmental pollution

There are also new additions to the catalogue, in the form of QR codes and the ability to share entries on Facebook, twitter and delicious. Read more about these changes here.

If you have a question, please contact us (see the Get in touch! page), or leave us a comment here on the blog.

We look forward to hearing from you!
