Starting Points

Databases

Here are some good databases that you can use to find journal articles and other resources.

Books

Search the catalog to find books on particular science topics.  For example:

  • Global Warming
  • Genetics
  • Nanotechnology


If your first search brings up too many irrelevant items, try using the Refine by Topic suggestions in the box on the left of the search results screen.

We also have reference books on the sciences that you can use to find general information, background material on a specialized topic, and references to other sources you can use for a project.  These are just a few examples of what we have in the reference collection.
