Climate Science and Policy - MAS Program: Books

This guide is for graduate students in the Climate Science and Policy master's degree program.

UC San Diego Library Catalog

Search for books held by the UCSD Library (including e-books). You also search by title, author or subject, or use the full library catalog for more options.

Requesting Book Delivery to SIO

Use the Roger Request feature (link at the top of the screen) to request that books be delivered to SIO for you (remember to fill out the Waiver form), and select "SIO Campus" under the Choose a Pickup Location menu.

Note the book's availability. If it's checked out, and you use Request, the book will be recalled, and it will take several days, or over 1 week, to get a notice that the book has become available for you; or search Circuit or Melvyl to request from another library.

Searching for Books

In Roger, use climat* (with the * - asterisk symbol) to search on multiple climate-related terms: climate, climatic, climatology, etc.  

Warning: use these terms (climat* atmosph*), or any broad truncated term (i.e. using the "*" wildcard symbol) WITH your specific subject terms, because used alone in a search they will retrieve very general and large results.

For example: climat* change, climat* policy, ocean warm*, etc.

If you don't have an author or title, start with the keyword search.

Searching climate change is the same as climate and change, and will retrieve only records with both terms.  Searching climate or climatic will retrieve results with at least one term, giving you a larger set of results.

Use the Roger Request feature (link at the top of the screen) to request that books be delivered to SIO for you (remember to fill out the Waiver form).

If you see >> Go to electronic version in the record, most of these are links to get to an e-book.
