Welcome to Physical Geography subject guide!

This subject guide recommends useful resources for research in the area of physical geography. They are categorized by the type of material. Please use the tabs on the left menu to explore these resources. Please feel free to contact me if you need some assistance. I am available for one-on-one consultation. 

If the Library doesn’t have the articles or books that you need, you may request them through COLOMBO (InterLibrary Loan) or email me the suggestion. We may be able to purchase a copy for the Library.

If you need to access McGill Library’s electronic resources, such as e-books, e-journals or article databases from off-campus, you need to log into EZproxy or VPN.
