Library Resources Update
The ORR (Online Research Resources), www.library.Illinois.edu/orr/, is no longer being updated will be discontinued after the Spring semester. In its place, please use the Find Journals and Databases (J&D) resource, openurl.library.uiuc.edu/sfxlcl3/az . Use the J&D to determine if we have electronic access to particular journals or databases.
Scientific American. We recently acquired electronic access to the full run of Scientific American and Scientific American Mind from Nature. Please use the J&D (above) for the link.
OpenHelix. Based on feedback from the research community at the U of I, we now subscribe to OpenHelix. Here you will find tutorials, teaching aids, and other guides for bioinformatics and genomics tools. Tell your students about this resource! Please use the J&D (above) for the link.
JoVE. We now have electronic access to all sections of the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), including Neuroscience, Immunology & Infection, Clincial & Translational Medicine, Bioengineering, and Basic Protocols. Please use the J&D (above) for the link to JoVE.
Faculty of 1000. The Faculty of 1000 (F1000) site now includes reviews on articles in both biology and medicine. In addition to evaluated articles you will find two new open access journals, F1000 Reports Biology and F1000 Reports Medicine. Please use the J&D (above) for the link to Faculty of 1000.
Global Health. Recently we added a subscription for Global Health to our CAB Abstracts account. Use Global Health to augment your Medline (PubMed) searches with a more universal outlook, including citations from developing countries. Please use the J&D (above) for the link to CAB Abstracts and Global Health.
BIOSIS Citation Index. We recently upgraded our subscription for Biological Abstracts to BIOSIS Citation Index. Unlike Biological Abstracts, BIOSIS Citation Index includes review journals and scientific meetings. And, like Web of Science, also includes citations to cited references. Find a link to Biosis Citation Index in the J&D (above).
Tip: Search “Web of Knowledge” (all databases) to search simultaneously Web of Science, BIOSIS Citation Index, CAB Abstracts & Global Health, Medline, Food Science & Technology Abstracts, and Zoological Abstracts. Find a link to Web of Knowledge in the J&D (above).
