The Library search box is your starting point to find books, ebooks, DVDs, and other materials.
Can Geographic Information Make You Healthy?
Search these databases to find articles on topics related to geography. I would also suggest looking at the full list of library databases, as geographical research can be multidisciplinary. Some research projects might require searching areas such as geology, environmental science, history, sociology, and anthropology.
Searches the academic scholarly web for peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, and articles. Searching Google Scholar from Portland Community College (following this link to Google Scholar preferences and selecting Save will set it up in your browser) will identify articles available from the PCC Library.
While this is primarily a science database, it does contain some valuable Geography journals -- such as Political Geography, the Journal of Historical Geography, Spatial Statistics, and Applied Geography -- as well as many regional and urban planning journals.
