One of the challenges of environmental and sustainability research is that it is multidisciplinary. In practical terms this means that you'll need to search multiple databases and change search terms to match different disciplines.
Another challenge is that the words "environment" and "sustainable" are used in many different ways so searches with these words will need added context. Make sure to add other words to your search to narrow results down to what you need. As an example, "urban sustainable water use " is a better search than "sustainable water."
Make sure to review the Search Tips & Tricks page if you're having trouble getting results and try consulting another research guide (some examples are below) or contacting a librarian for help.
