WHERE DO I BEGIN? SEARCHING THE LITERATURE

FYI: 

Library Homepage:  http://www.kutztown.edu/library

Use the OMNISEARCH search box on the homepage if you have a very specific topic, title, or author and you want to know how much information is available.

For specific online databases, use the Articles and Databases link in the Omnisearch box.


ONLINE DATABASES for Environmental Sciences

  • JSTOR  Database has articles from 234 Biological Sciences journals, most of which are in full-text.
  • Science Citation Index (Web of Science)  Citations only, so you will have to use ILL.  This database uses the bibliographies from articles to tracks and connect research.  Coverage is very good.

  • Biological Abstracts   The largest (most citations) biology database.  Considered to be the premier biology database by many scholars in th field.  Unfortunatley, most of the entries are abstract only, so leave time to get the articles through Interlibrary Loan.
