BIO 191: General Biology I

Databases for Finding Biology Articles

These are the five databases to help you find scholarly articles for Biology.

They are listed in the order that I would recommend you try them for your assignment:

How to Get the Full Text of Articles

1. Click on any link in your abstract that says "Full Text" to see if it will bring you to the full article. Also try links like "Locate Full Text at Library" or "Le Moyne Full Text".

2. Check the Journal Finder to see if the library subscribes to that e-journal. If we do, simply click through to the correct issue and then the correct article. (Look at your citation to find this information).

3. If neither of those two options gets you full text, use interlibrary loan to request the article. Depending on your article, you could receive it via email (at the address you specify) in a few hours or a few days—but it's usually quick!

4. You can always email Kari at zheheikm@lemoyne.edu and ask for help with getting full text!
