The Library collects in the field of Geography and Earth Sciences primarily to support the teaching and research needs of the School of Life and Environmental Sciences within the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment.
Resources in this area are also used to varying degrees by other Schools in the University.
The School of Life and Environmental Science offers Bachelor of Environmental Science (Environmental Management). Other degrees within the School include earth science and hydrology.
The Bachelor of Construction Management, in the School of Architecture and Built Environment, includes units of study on measurement and estimation.
Within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences in the Faculty of Arts and Education, students are able to undertake Australian studies as a major sequence within the Bachelor of Arts.
There are no postgraduate courses in the disciplines covered by this collection, but postgraduate research degrees are available in the earth sciences.
Major online databases such as GeoRef, Aquatic Sciences & Fisheries Abstracts, Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management, Applied Science & Technology Abstracts, Web of Science, SciVerse, Scopus and Academic Search Complete provide access to a range of information.
Specialised collections in the earth sciences exist at Melbourne, in oceanography and hydrology at Warrnambool. The Warrnambool Campus Library also has an extensive collection of maps, with complete coverage of Victoria and Tasmania in the 1:100,000 topographic series, and of South West Victoria in the 1:25,000 topographic series.
