Request items from around the world through Interlibrary Loan.

  • WorldCat  
    Worldwide catalog of library resources. See if it's in I-Share, SIU, or locate items to request via ILL.

Find Articles about Toxicity and testing

The Web of Science box allows you to search many biology databases for articles about toxicity (Biological Abstracts, Zoological Record, Science Citation Index, MEDLINE (PubMed), etc.). Two of these databases, Biological Abstracts and Zoological Record, are not available in the OneSearch set of indexes.

Note: For this tool, don't search with sentences. Use your key terms and connect them with the words and (i.e. all of my words), or (any of my words), or not (none of these words):

What dose of mercury is lethal to fish ---> lethal dose and mercury and fish

Sample searches:

  •  toxicity and daphnia and biology
  • pesticides and toxicity and daphnia
  • mercury and lethal dose and daphnia

Use the Find Full Text link to see if we have the item online or in print at Morris Library.

Find Books about Environmental Toxicology or Invertebrate Ecology

Use the I-Share @ Morris Catalog to find books and other resources. 

Search by broad topic and then limit by format type including electronic books (see the right hand-hand column of the search results screen).

You may limit to SIUC only if you choose (this works for electronic books).

You may also change the search type from relevance to newest.

If you are unable to request an item from I-Share, ask me or Ask-A-Librarian about requesting it using a different interlibrary loan system. 

Here are some suggested search terms.

  • Environmental Toxicology
  • Toxicology Environmental Aspects
  • Freshwater invertebrates Ecology

Some online resources are available below.

  • Official Scientific Style and Format Citation Quick Guide
    There are 2 tabs: one for Author-Name and one for Citation-Sequence/Citation Name
  • EndNote via Web of Science
    EndNote Web allows you to create and format online lists of references using many styles, including CSE. You may also import references from many databases. You will have to register for access (free for SIUC users). Click on the "My Tools" link at the top of the Web of Science page, then on the EndNote(TM) link. Contact me for assistance.
