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. (EBSCO)
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.
This is the free version of BioOne, a database of biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. It is set to search ONLY the "open access" articles. Under "Refine By," use the "Search within" box to add your search terms. This will find FREE articles.
Google Scholar finds scholarly articles, books, papers, etc. Note: This link identifies you as a Cal U person to Google Scholar. This give you access to items that are full-text 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 is a free resource for researching biomedical and life sciences literature. It does not include full-text journal articles itself. However, links to the full text are often present when it is available from other sources. It includes the citations from the MEDLINE database, full-text from PubMed Central, and citations for books. Cal U patrons: using the Library's version of MEDLINE Complete will provide you with much 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. Check to see if you are OK by viewing their OS/Browser Recommendations under System Recommendations and Requirements.
A free, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells from a variety of organisms, showcasing cell architecture, intracellular functionalities, and both normal and abnormal processes. Sponsored by the American Society for Cell Biology.
This article in Wikipedia lists an extensive array of biological databases. Don't think "journals." These are "stores of biological information" covering: nucleic acid databases, amino acid/protein databases, and other databases created by researchers.
NAP publishes reports from the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council. You can download FREE PDFs for thousands of ebooks. Browse the topics from the menu.
Don't be put off when requesting a PDF. When it looks like you need a password, just click on the "Continue as a guest" button. You will need to provide your email and name. If you do this, you can download whole books, or individual chapters, for FREE!
This is a "first stop" site for molecular biology research. NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information.
PDB-101 is for teachers, students, and the general public to promote exploration of proteins and nucleic acids. How does it differ from the Protein Data Bank? PDB is the central storehouse of biomolecular structures--but is designed for experts. PDB-101 builds introductory materials designed to help beginners get started. It's the "101," entry level, course. From RCSB.
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) serves as a repository of information about the 3D structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies. If you find this advanced site difficult to work with, consider using the PDB-101 site. From RCSB.
Provides access to authoritative, selected science information from U.S. Government agencies, including research and development results. (Link goes to the Advanced Search. For the Basic search screen, click on their "Home" link in the menu.)
