Primary Databases

  • Biological Abstracts (1969-2002) EBSCO
  • Biological Abstracts (2002-present) EBSCO
    Biological Abstracts is one of the foremost sources of bibliographic references to the life science journal literature as well as international reviews, reports, meetings and books. This database enables researchers and students to retrieve references to vital biological and medical research findings, clinical studies, and discoveries of new organisms. Coverage is international, and includes agriculture, biochemistry, biomedicine, biotechnology, botany, ecology, microbiology, pharmacology, and zoology.


  • Biological Sciences (1982-present) CSA
    This interdisciplinary database offers abstracts and citations to a wide range of research in biomedicine, biotechnology, zoology and ecology, and some aspects of agriculture and veterinary science. Supporting over two dozen areas of expertise, this CSA database provides access to literature from over 6000 sources including serials, conference proceedings, technical reports, monographs and selected books and patents.


  • Calcium & Calcified Tissue Abstracts (1982-present) CSA
    Focusing on calcium and its role in biology and medicine, Calcium and Calcified Tissue Abstracts assembles pertinent information drawn from wide-ranging disciplines, eliminating the need for exhaustive literature searches.


  • Chemoreception Abstracts (1982-present) CSA
    Chemoreception Abstracts aggregates the perinent literature in the field of chemoreception. Coverage includes areas in neurobiology, chemistry, and physiology of taste, smell, internal chemoreception, chemotaxis, signal transduction, receptors, channels and neurogenetics.


  • CSA Neurosciences Abstracts (1982-present) CSA
    CSA Neurosciences Abstracts covers all aspects of vertebrate and invertebrate neuroscience, and their implications for other specialties of biomedicine.


  • MEDLINE (CSA)(1989-present) CSA
  • MEDLINE (OCLC/FirstSearch) (1965-present) OCLC
  • MEDLINE (OVID) (1966-present) OVID Produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the MEDLINE database is the premier database for bibliographic and abstract coverage of international biomedical literature.


  • Web of Science (Science Citation Index Expanded) (1945-present) ISI
