The Biological Abstracts database has a new interface and therefore a new look. A comprehensive reference database that covers life sciences, Biological Abstracts is an essential tool for researchers in the fields of botany, microbiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, evolutionary ecology, neurology, toxicology and more.
The library, together with a UW System consortia, offers you access to this Thomsom Scientific database through the ISI Web of Knowledge. Covering 1994 to the present, Biological Abstracts is updated every two months and includes nearly nine million bibliographic records.
Judy Wurtzler is UW-Platteville’s division librarian for Biology and for the School of Agriculture. She notes, "Giving you access to more than 4000 journals, the Biological Abstracts database offers many articles full text online. Users find the Web of Science interface easy to manage in their research."
To access Biological Abstracts visit the library’s homepage. Click "Resources by Academic Discipline" and "Biology". There you will find links to this database and several others in the field — and other peer-reviewed links.
Editor’s note: Please remember that for each discipline or major taught at UWP, a helpful division librarian is assigned to assist with collection development and instruction, along with a designated department representative to the library. AND each discipline or major taught at UWP has at least one database which indexes, abstracts, and often includes full text of journal articles within the field. Visit the library’s "Resources by Academic Discipline" web pages for links to these databases, and more.
Grant-writing can be intimidating - unless you have access to current and helpful materials to help with the process. The Karrmann Library offers the UWP community just that, through a Grant Writing Reference Resource web page and through offering books found with the Library Catalog!
