Research Guide: "Arctic Research Environment, Health, and Culture of the Circumpolar North"
A compilation of resources appearing in the February 2011 issue of College & Research Libraries News. It was compiled and written by Spencer Acadia, a psychology and sociology librarian at Texas Woman’s University. He is currently writing a Ph.D.. dissertation on Arctic health
From the Introduction:
What follows is an annotated list of Internet resources compiled to assist students, librarians, and novice researchers interested in myriad Arctic topics. This list is not exhaustive, but is meant to be a beginner’s guide to high-quality, academic Arctic resources. Many of these resources are general and overarch the entire Arctic spectrum of study, though some are tailored to specific audiences. Although country-specific Web sites are indeed significant sources of Arctic information, these sites have been excluded from this list to allow more space for key Web sites that contain essential information and research about the Arctic as a complete system.
