Did you know that in addition to using a keyword search to find material you can also use a subject heading search to find material that a keyword search might miss?
On the library catalog basic search page use the drop down menu to change the search from Keyword Anywhere to Subject Keywords.
Or once you find an book that looks promising check the subject headings that the item is tagged with. Click on the subject heading and proceed to find all the material in the catalog with that subject heading.
You can also use subject searches when searching for articles in databases. You can even combine keyword and subject searches in one query to get very focused results.
Examples of subject headings that might be helpful for this class:
Architecture -- Environmental aspects
Architecture -- Human factors
Nature -- Psychological aspects
Buildings -- Performance
Buildings -- Energy conservation
Design -- Environmental aspects
Renewable energy sources
Social responsibility of business
Water-supply -- Management
Water resources development -- International cooperation
Water-supply -- Risk assessment
