CALM Social Sciences - Geography Journal Articles

Articles from our Geography databases can be great for required or supplemental readings.

Just be sure to direct students to the article by the permalink (or static URL) rather than posting the PDF directly in your Cougar Course.

This will ensure two things 1) that we are complying with copyright and publisher restrictions, and 2) that our journal usage is counted (this allows us to justify maintaining our subscriptions.)
