Biology: Books

Welcome to the research guide for Biology. The resources below are a great place to start your research.

OneSearch Print Books


 

 

Use OneSearch to search across all library resources.  Narrow your results to books by using the options in the "Refine my Results" bar on the left.

In the "Availability" section, select "Available in Print."  Your results will now show only print books available at both the Main Campus and East Campus libraries.

The video below will cover how to find both books and electronic books using OneSearch.

Advanced Search Tips

  • Brainstorm 2-4 key terms that sum up your topic to use as your search terms
  • Use quotes around names or phrases... "Albert Einstein" or "Oil Pipelines"
  • Use AND to search for multiple concepts together... "endangered species" AND protection
  • Use OR to search for alternate or related terms... "global warming" OR "climate change"
  • Use the "Subjects" links found in each book record to find related books 
  • Ask a Librarian for assistance!
