The Biology Virtual Library Portal has served the Schools of Life Sciences on campus since 1959. Now a virtual space, the online library has a customized Easy Search tab for the Biological Sciences and links to frequently used databases and other useful resources. Subject areas include all aspects of the biological sciences, biochemistry, and bioengineering. The print collection is now housed in the Funk/ACES Library.

The following changes are coming to PubMed:

  •  The Send to E-mail feature will employ Google reCAPTCHA.  Google reCAPTCHA will make it hard to abuse the Send to E-mail feature (e.g., send spam). 
    If you don’t want to be bothered with Google reCAPTCHA, sign into your My NCBI account.
  •  A "back to top" button will be added to the end of results lists so you can quickly and easily return to the top of the results.
