Library Research Tips

Know your OIT net id and password; you’ll need it to log onto library databases from off campus. 

Bring your UMass photo ID  to the Library; you’ll need it to check out books, print journals, media, video cameras and laptops.

Books may take a while to arrive through InterLibrary loan; so plan early!

What is an Ecovillage?

"Ecovillages are urban or rural communities of people, who strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life. To achieve this, they integrate various aspects of ecological design, permaculture, ecological building, green production, alternative energy, community building practices, and much more."
