The Wiley Digital Archives is hosting an upcoming webinar, Supporting Modern Environmental Research with Digital Primary Sources, hosted in partnership with Library Journal on February 7th from 1:00-2:00 PM EST.

With rising sea levels, deforestation, global warming, and the surge of extreme weather events, environmental research is more important than ever. Access to primary sources and historical data is essential to modern environmental research as researchers look to the past to predict future impact.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

– Opportunities for using archives in environmental research and how it can support modern discoveries
– Case studies featuring the integration of digital primary sources and historical datasets in environmental research and coursework
– What you can expect from Wiley’s newest digital archive, Wiley Digital Archives: Environmental Science and History, including a closer look into the collection of one of Wiley’s partners, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Speakers include Rachel Sperling (Librarian for Environmental Sciences, Yale University) and Fiona Ainsworth (Head of Library and Archives, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew), and moderated by Ray Abruzzi (Senior Editorial Director of Social Sciences & Humanities, Wiley)
