Books often provide more context and treat subjects more broadly than web sites, news sources or even journal articles.  They can be a great way to become better aquainted with some of the core issues related to sustainability. 

Take a look at our BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS via a Zotero Group Library. All are available in print or online at Concordia. Search the Sofia Discovery tool to find individual titles.
