Biosciences: Library Research Skills (BIOM509): 4. Find: where to search

Once you have decided what sort of research materials you want to work with, you can choose the best research tool to help you find that material. There are two Library Research tools that will help you find relevant materials:

 

Library Search is a good starting point. 

You can search for your research topic(s) and quickly and easily retrieve details of print and electronic books, journal articles and other full text material.   

You can also use it to check whether we have particular books or journals you may discover during your literature searching.

 

To research the global literature on a topic, and go beyond quick full text results, then you should follow up with a database search. 

You can tailor your search more precisely using all the sophisticated functionality available on the research databases.
