Campus Sustainability Month 2022: A Library Display of Electronic Resources

A library display celebrating the ASU 2022 Campus Sustainability Month. The display includes electronic resources available at ASU Library, many of them are open access.


Benjamin Leffel. Climate Action Plan Adoption for 176 U.S. Cities, 2010-2019

  • Time series dataset of adoption by year of climate action plans by 177 U.S. cities, 2010-2019, with links to plans included. This dataset is intended for use by researchers and practitioners investigating both individual climate action plans and time series patterns of adoption at the municipal level.

Little, David. Microplastics Images Dataset. ASU Library Research Data Repository. 

  • This dataset is a collection of images of microplastics. Microplastics are small fragments of plastic (<5mm) that potentially have a negative impact on our health and the environment. Suggested dataset uses are for image classification, image segmentation, or any other image processing tasks. ZIP file contains color images. Size: 34.1 MB Type: JPEG

Title, Pascal O., and Jordan B. Bemmels. ENVIREM: ENVIronmental Rasters for Ecological Modeling Version 1.0

  • The ENVIREM dataset v1.0 is a set of 16 climatic and 2 topographic variables that can be used in modeling species' distributions. The strengths of this dataset include their close ties to ecological processes, and their availability at a global scale, at several spatial resolutions, and for several time periods. The underlying temperature and precipitation data that went into their construction comes from the WorldClim dataset (, and the solar radiation data comes from the Consortium for Spatial Information ( The data are compatible with and expand the set of variables from WorldClim v1.4 ( For more information, please visit the project website:

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
