WorldCat is a database that allows researchers to search the combined catalogs of hundreds of libraries around the world. It contains more than 52 million records for books, journals, audiovisual materials and more. This source can help researchers find items, verify citations, and identify which libraries hold a particular title.
Includes citations for materials from the first U.S. dissertation (1861) to those accepted as recently as last semester. Starting in 1997 full-text is often available. If full-text is not available information about ordering the document is provided.
Collection of science and engineering reference books with interactive tables, graphs, and equations. Access to an aggregated collection of online full-text books from a variety of science/technology publishers. This resource is enhanced with interactive tables, graphs, and equations. Covers subject areas of chemistry, materials science, chemical safety, life sciences, food science, and engineering. Basic keyword and advanced fielded searching is available.
The National Academies Press (NAP) was created by the National Academies to publish the reports issued by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council. The NAP publishes more than 200 books a year in science, engineering, and health, capturing views on important issues in science and health policy.
The Bookshelf is a searchable collection of online biomedical textbooks and other literature. In addition to some classic biology and medical textbooks and monographs, it also includes books and databases produced by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
Allows full-text searching of Springer-Verlag electronic resources, including several thousand electronic books in a wide variety of subjects. Includes most books published from 2005 and titles in book series from 1997. This database includes books, book chapters, and journal articles; search results can be limited by type of resource, author, subject, language, and publication date.

Contains over 5,500 entries on biology, biophysics, and biochemistry, as well as key terms from medicine and palaeontology. It includes biographies of key scientists, and feature articles on important topics, such as bioinformatics, genetically modified organisms, microarray technology, and RNA interference. The dictionary’s chronologies chart developments in major fields including cell biology, genetics, microscopy, and vitamins.
An online collection of images, movies, illustrations and animations across biology and biomedicine, covering Developmental Biology, Histology & Pathology, Immunology, Microbiology & Parasitology, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Neuroscience and Plant Biology. All content is available to subscribers for non-commercial use. From BioMed Central.
An authoritative reference work for students, educators, and clinical geneticists that defines the latest terms and presents important ancillary encyclopedic information. Includes terms from a wide range of disciplines which entwine with genetics, including molecular biology, cell biology, medicine, botany, and evolutionary studies. Its 7,000 cross-referenced definitions are supported by line drawings, tables, and chemical formulae.
Drawing on the information contained in the Oxford Dictionary of Natural History, covers biochemistry, plant physiology, cytology, ecology, genetics, evolution, bio-geography, earth history, and the earth sciences. Worldwide coverage of taxonomic groups: one-third of the entries are devoted to taxa, from bacteria and fungi to the main groups of flowering and non-flowering plants.
Contains over 9,000 entries on all aspects of science and provides coverage of biology (including human biology), chemistry, physics, the earth sciences, and astronomy. Appendices cover the periodic table, geological time scale, and animal and plant classification. Provides virtual thumb tags for easy reference. Featured are short biographies of leading scientists and chronologies of specific subjects, including plastics, electronics and cell biology. Both concise and wide-ranging, this dictionary is a useful reference work and a great introduction for students and non-scientists alike.
Covers biochemistry, cell biology, clinical medicine, developmental biology, diversity of life, ecology, evolution, genetics, philosophy of science, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, plant science, structural biology and virology. Since 2005, also contains content from the Encyclopedia of the Human Genome.
