Additional Sources

Many academic institutions and professional associations publish research guides on topics across a multitude of disciplines.  Research guides are helpful when exploring a new or unfamiliar topic.  They provide links to primary and secondary sources on many aspects of climate change law, including energy and environment research, foreign and international legal research, and special topics in climate change.

In addition to this guide, below are links to selected guides available on the websites of MacMillan Law Library, Woodruff Library, several other academic libraries, and the Library of Congress to help you begin the research process.
