By Julia Gelfand (UCI), Resource Liaison for Earthscape

Columbia University Libraries and Columbia University Press have announced that Columbia Earthscape: An Online Resource on the global environment will cease on June 30, 2009.  The site will no longer be supported. 

This resource began in 2000 exploring the intersection of the earth and environmental sciences.  There were many resources on this site that supported teaching, learning, research and public policy in the ever changing global interests of environmental studies.  Unfortunately, subscriptions alone could not longer sustain the rising costs of operations to maintain the site.  Please contact your librarians on each campus for information about related resources that will support your learning in these subject areas.  Columbia CIAO and the Columbia Gazetteer will be continued products accessible to the University of California Libraries.
