Key Subjects

One traditional tool used by librarians to organize and provide access to information is a system of authorized subject headings. The list below provides some, not all, of the subject headings that are relevant to the study of environmental humanities. Just as the phrases "in art" and "in literature" add specificity to some of the headings listed here, you can combine others with a term like "history" or a geographical focus (e.g., "United States") to refine your search.
