Request items from around the world through Interlibrary Loan. Check and request books from I-Share first before requesting books through this service.
We suggest you start with using the EBSCOHost Databases for finding basic research articles. A few sample searches and sample articles found in the database are listed below. There are many more databases! 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.
Use the Morris Library 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). However, you will find more materials if you use the "All I-Share Libraries" search, although you won't be able to request ebooks. 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 sample search terms:
