Can't find it at Morris?

Find Articles

We suggest you start with using the OneSearch database for finding basic research articles about osmosis and diffusion. A few sample searches and sample articles found in the database are listed below. There are many more! See the Biology Research Guide, or please contact me or the librarians at Morris Library. Note: if you can't find an article online or in print at the library, please contact me.

Sample searches:

  • osmosis and "vascular plants"
    • (On results screen: check the Academic Journal limit on the left side)
    • If the PDF is not available, use the Find Full Text or Linked Full Text options
  • osmosis and potatoes
    • (On results screen: check the Academic Journal limit on the left side)
    • If the PDF is not available, use the Find Full Text or Linked Full Text options

Sample article:

Mauro MA, Menegalli FC. 2003. Evaluation of water and sucrose diffusion coefficients in potatoe tissue during osmotic concentration. J Food Eng.     57(4):367-374


Find Books about Biological Transport, Osmosis and Diffusion

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.

  • Biological Transport.
  • Physiological Transport

Search I-Share @ Morris Library
