The purpose of this project is to bring together scholars, graduate students, librarians, and others interested in different aspects and influences of water. A crucial natural resource with political, social, and economic implications, water is investigated from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. However, there is a critical need to bringtogether and integrate all this dispersed research. This project seeks to highlight the Rutgers University Libraries’ central role in providing a common ground and support for the scientists and social scientists from numerous schools, departments, and institutes and centers across Rutgers.
