The professional librarians at the University of New Haven provide ongoing library support for sustainability research and learning in the form of research guides, materials selection recommendations from faculty, and e-learning objects focused on sustainability research. Librarians are embedded in the Blackboard course management system for various courses providing support for research.
The University Library maintains a collection of materials that support sustainability research including a robust collection of journals, books, media items, U.S. Government documents, and other materials.
