General Information

Hello and welcome!

This guide was created for the University's Biological Sciences program and others needing guidance in using the library's biology resources. 

Please select tabs above for more information.

We will be announcing a new subscription for JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, and the world's first peer reviewed scientific video journal. Established in 2006, JoVE is devoted to publishing scientific research in a visual format to help researchers overcome two of the biggest challenges facing the scientific research community today; poor reproducibility and the time and labor intensive nature of learning new experimental techniques.

If you have any questions or need in-depth assistance, please contact me or another reference librarian. I appreciate any comments and/or suggestions you may have about the usefulness and navigation of this resource.

Thank you,
