Envia is a new resource for the discovery and access of environmental science information, being developed by the British Library.

Envia is a free online resource, being developed by the British Library, to connect environmental science researchers to:

  • Reports from government departments and agencies
  • PhD theses
  • Data resources

Users are connected to full-text content, downloadable either directly from Envia or on an external websites.

Currently, Envia is in Beta, as we are developing the content base, adding new functionality and seeking feedback. The initial content focus is flooding, but we will expand to related subject areas in the future.

The Envia team is working in collaboration with Living With Environmental Change (LWEC), a partnership of 22 public sector organisations which fund and carry out environmental research. A Memorandum of Understanding between The British Library and LWEC commits us to work together to improve environmental information discovery and access.
