An article database focusing on human and physical geography, environmental sciences, oceanography, earth sciences, ecology, geology, geomechanics, alternative energy sources, pollution, waste management and nature conservation. [1973 - present]
Geobase provides current coverage of almost 2,000 international journals, including both peer-reviewed titles and trade publications, and provides archival coverage of several thousand additional journal titles and books. The material covered includes refereed scientific papers; trade journal and magazine articles, product reviews, directories and any other relevant material. As well as providing comprehensive coverage of the core scientific and technical periodicals, Geobase has a unique coverage of non-English language and less readily available publications including books, conference proceedings and reports, making this a good resource for multidisciplinary searches of international literature.
Use Geofacets to search hundreds of thousands of geologic maps extracted from peer-reviewed publications in an interactive map-based interface. Maps are geo-referenced and easy to integrate into ArcGIS, Google Earth and other programs.
Indexes scholarly journals, books, maps, US and Canadian dissertations, conference proceedings, reports, and government documents published worldwide on geology and other subjects within the geosciences. [1785 - present]

Where's the PDF?
Once you've searched an index to find articles, you may need to use UC-eLinks to link to a PDF or html file if the full text is not immediately available. Each database is a bit different, but a good rule of thumb is this: when you see the UC-eLinks icon, click on it to view your article access options, which can range from full text to a call number to an Interlibrary Loan request:
