About

Geography deals with the description, distribution, and interaction of the diverse physical, biological, and cultural features of the earth. It includes the study of Climate and Environmental Change, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS), Food and Agriculture, Cities, Development and Justice, and Water Resources.

The Geography librarian has complied a list of recommended resources, listed to the left. However, researchers may also want to explore subject guides for a specific region (For example: South Asian Studies or Slavic & East European Studiesor visit the related guides for more specific topics below. 

Please feel free to schedule a research consultation with the Geography librarian for specific questions!

Citation Managers

Citation managers format references in the style you choose (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago). Many of these have plug-ins for web browsers and word processors, and can make your life MUCH easier! I recommend Zotero, but all of these are good options for organizing your research and automatically creating in-text citations and reference lists. 

IU students have free access to several citation managers (i.e., "bibliographic software").

NOTE: Always check the accuracy of citations created through these tools. They can be very helpful, but may make mistakes.
