ESPM!!! no— not ESPN, but ESPM

Talk about initialisms – it is confusing!   We are talking about Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management, not the latest sports news.
The database provides coverage to abstracts and much full-text back to 1967.

It is a great database for a wide variety of researchers: environmental engineers, civil engineers, chemists, ecologists, toxicologists, health & safety specialists, and the list goes on.
Rather than re-invent the wheel, I will “borrow” the description of ESPM from our A-Z list of databases.

ESPM is a “Multidisciplinary database that provides abstracts and references to literature covering all issues of air, land, water, and noise pollution as well as bacteriology, ecology, toxicology, risk assessment, environmental engineering, environmental biotechnology, waste management, and water resources.”

If you are looking for environmental impact statements or reports from the EPA, etc., this is the database to go to.  There is even a direct link to RefWorks – an online bibliographic management tool for managing your research citations.
