Andersen Library subscribes to many databases that can be used to locate periodical (journal, magazine and newspaper) articles, as well as book chapters, dissertations and the like. Online databases are the preferred way to find recent articles. If you need older articles, or cannot find any articles on your topic using online databases, ask a Librarian for assistance. Databases list articles that may or may not be owned by Andersen Library, so you may need to use Find It or the Journal Search to find the full text (see the next tab for information).
Andersen Library databases can be accessed from both on and off-campus by selecting the Articles/Databases button on the box on the Andersen Library homepage.
Below are the databases most frequently used for research in the biological sciences. For most topics in this class, start with Biological Abstracts, PubMed, and Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science)
