I'm Liz Clarke, the Academic Librarian for Biological Sciences. Contact me if you need advice / help with using Library resources to support your study, teaching or research, or if you would like to recommend a book / journal for our collections.
|Library Search||Library Search is the one-stop shop for searching all of our collections - physical and electronic. It attempts to pull in data from every database we have access to, and is a good place to start a search.|
|Find Databases||The Library subscribes to many databases, and to get the best results you'll need to search subject-specific databases individually (rather than through Library Search).|
|Find E‑Journals||Each database we subscribe to includes content from many different journals. If you want to look at articles from just one, use the Find E-journals tool to see which journals we have access to.|
More information on how to navigate these tools can be found in our SCI Guide to the Library
