This guide will cover the basics of finding information on alternative energy. This page has some starting points for library information, like books and DVDs in the library's collection and articles in the library databases. The Databases tab has more information about choosing the best database for your particular topic. The Internet tab has recommended websites, such as government and research sites, that provide excellent research-related information.
