Biology 141: Introductory Biology I: Find Articles

  Biology Databases

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, both online and in print. 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 the Find It button, Journal Holdings List or Citation Linker to find the full text (see the Find Full Text tab for information).

Andersen Library databases can be accessed from both on and off-campus.

Below are the databases most frequently used for research in the biological sciences. We recommend starting with PubMed and ScienceDirect.
