In fact, RNPLS&T has been acquiring literature in ecology since its establishment in 1958.

The subjects of “ecology’, “nature management”, “environmental protection”, “natural resources", "sustainable development” receive wide coverage in publications in technology and natural sciences.

For today RNPLS&T has accumulated a large collection of books and periodicals in these subject areas. Its significant part is accessible in the Library’s Reading room for ecology, priority sciences and technology developments, where you can find items you need and get access to the thematic Database “Ecology: Science and Technologies”. The list of new acquisitions to the Reading Room collection is updated on a monthly basis.

Since 2003, RNPLS&T, in cooperation with other organizations, has been building the single ecological information data bank of Russian and the CIS libraries. Please review the  information resources of RNPLS&T’s partner libraries  at  "The libraries’ Green Pages". The section Russian regions is updated on the regular basis and comprises materials on ecological situation in Russian Federation entities and links to the information resources in regional ecology.

The RNPLS&T’s Group of Ecology and Sustainable Development Projects organizes thematic exhibitions and displays, workshops, library lessons and other events. Within the annual World Professional Forum “Crimea” (before 2014, “Crimea” International Conference), the section on ecology information support and  ecological education of population, and since 2018, the International Conference in Ecology are held. The problems of ecology and sustainable development also get coverage at LIBCOM Conference. The reviews of the events are available through the Library’s website.
