Q. How to find information on natural disasters occuring over the last three years


On the library homepage, click on Find Articles, On the Find Articles & More page, you can select the database(s) that you need.

For this subject area, I would recommend searching in the following databases:

  • GreenFILE
  • ProQuest Central
  • Research Library
  • Academic Search Elite

I would also advise researching specific natural disasters that have occurred recently (i.e. the tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri in 2011, the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and the 2010 earthquakes in Haiti and Chile).

An example of a keyword search is "Joplin tornado" AND effects

Each of these databases has a box to check for Peer Review. You may also need to check the Full Text box so that you can access the full article.
