Biological Abstracts indexes the life sciences and biomedical research information. It provides "abstracts," not full-text. Any full-text that appears is because that article was available through another library database. Note: Indexed content is limited to 1998 through June 2019. (EBSCO)
This premier medical research database includes very high end journal content, with significant full-text availability. Note: This EBSCO version of MEDLINE provides many more full-text articles than PubMed. (EBSCO)
A full-text archive of over 1,700 of the best scholarly journals in the social sciences, humanities, mathematics, life sciences, etc. Full-text is available from the first issue, but usually does not include the most recent 2-5 years. Note: A very small number of journals now include current content.
OneSearch combines most of the library's resources into a single database. Rather than search databases separately, you can do just "one search." OneSearch includes articles, books, ebooks, and more. Hint: You will get a lot of results, so use the limits on the left side to focus in on what you need. (EBSCO)
This is the free version of BioOne, with the search pre-limited to the 25,000 open access articles available to anyone. Under "Refine By," use the "Search within" box to add your search terms. This will find FREE articles. If you search ALL of BioOne, you will need to use Interlibrary Loan to get free access to the "pay to view" articles.
Google Scholar finds scholarly articles, books, papers, etc. Note: This link identifies you to Google Scholar as a Cal U person. This provides you with access to items that are available through the Library. Look for the "Full-Text @ Cal U" links.
From the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Library, AGRICOLA covers journal articles, monographs, theses, patents, software, audiovisual materials, and technical reports related to agriculture back to 1970. (EBSCO)
Covers scholarly, government, and popular sources on all aspects of human impact to the environment, including: global climate change, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more. (EBSCO)
PubMed provides free public access to search MEDLINE and other resources. Some content is Open Access, but much is not. Cal U patrons: using our EBSCO access to MEDLINE Complete will provide you with more full-text.
Provides access to CAS databases from the American Chemical Society. This is the premier database for researching chemistry and the life sciences (including biochemistry, biology, pharmacology, medicine, etc.). NOTE: You must create an account to use SciFinder! Click on "more..." to learn how.
Note 1:BEFORE you can use SciFinder, you need to REGISTER FOR AN ACCOUNT by creating your own username and password. Once you are registered, THEN you can use the SciFinder link to access the database. Note 2: SciFinder is not compatible with some browser and computer operating systems.
