EBSCO offers free environmental database

GreenFile is a database offered at no charge by EBSCO. According to their Web site,

In keeping with our commitment to environmental consciousness, EBSCO proudly offers GreenFILE, a freely accessible research database focusing on the relationship between human beings and the environment, with well-researched but accessible information on topics ranging from global warming to recycling to alternate fuel sources and beyond. Comprised of scholarly and general interest titles, as well as government documents and reports, GreenFILE offers a unique perspective on the positive and negative ways humans affect the ecology. Drawing on the connection between the environment and disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology, GreenFILE will serve as an informative resource for anyone concerned about the issues facing our planet.
Among the 600 titles indexed by this database, many are open access, meaning the full text is available for free. Many of the titles are covered comprehensively from their originating date to present. Similar to other EBSCO databases, the Visual Search is available through GreenFile.
