Biofuels and Biomass Energy (bioenergy): A. Introduction

This Cornell University Albert R. Mann Library guide gathers disparate biofuels and biomass energy information resources in one place for convenient access and easy review. The primary focus is on resources produced in, or relating to, the United States.

Contents: Sources of Information

The web is a great source of information but it doesn’t (yet) contain the universe of all available information. Individuals may possess direct and valuable biofuels knowledge, and until they share it in print or electronic form, it is inaccessible unless you speak directly with them.


Specialized online web sites are great for keeping current, as are periodicals like magazines, journals and newspapers (specialized titles are excellent sources for browsing and keeping selectively up-to-date). Many of these are printed, some are universally available free online and others are available online only for a fee via a contract or through affiliation with an entity such as a college or university.
