Climate Data: FAQ

Subject Guide for Climate Data


  1. I'm working off campus. How can I access the databases and read electronic journals?

    The majority of our electronic databases and journals are restricted for use only by UF faculty, staff, and students. If you are on campus, the library recognizes your IP address, however if you are off campus, you will need to log on using the UF VPN software.

  2. What is the best database to use for Climate Data?
    • Make sure you are logged into the UF VPN!
    • Click the tab above for journal articles.
    • Still need help? Your librarian, Michael Howell, is available to help you. Just contact him!

  3. The UF library doesn't have my:
    • Journal: Be sure that you are looking in the catalog for the journal and not just through the e-journal locator. We have an increasing number of journals online but many titles (especially older volumes) are still in print format. The print journals in Marston are shelved by call number and date: volumes after 1990 are on the 3rd floor and before 1990 on the 1st floor. If we don't hold your desired journal, you can request the individual article through Interlibrary Loan (see book below).
    • Book: If you can't locate the book in the catalog, you can order it through Interlibrary Loan. You will need to create a separate ILL account with you contact information and specify as much information as you can about the desired book.
    • In either case, please contact your librarian, Michael Howell, so he is aware of the missing resource.
