Library resources to help with biology research.

Getting Started

How can this LibGuide help me?

This LibGuide contains links and lots of information and support all to help you find the resources you need for your research needs.

There are four types of resources highlighted in the tabs at the top including:

  1. Reference Materials - Includes encyclopedias, which are a great place to start for background and statistical information
  2. Books and eBooks - Breadth and depth of information
  3. Articles - Primary research and more current information
  4. Web Sites - Alternative search engines and information from government agencies and associations

There are also tabs for images and videos and help on how to evaluate and ethically cite your sources, use EndNote, and writing help.

So explore all the tabs and links as they are designed to help make the process of finding resources easier and hopefully more enjoyable for you. Good luck and may Saint Jerome, the patron Saint of libraries, be your guide.

These links will take you to sights and sounds on campus, images of art, historical photographs, and resources for relaxation and staying connected to our community.

Welcome to the Library

 
    Old Sol might be down to his last 4 billion years but SOLAR will just keep serving your needs. It's like Google, only better. 



Before you visit the Library ...
Due to COVID-19, there are a few changes in the Library this year. The only access to the Library is via the tunnel. The Cloister Walk between Tower Hall and the Library is closed for the safety of the Sisters. The stairwells in the Library are one-way only. The front stairwell is designated as up only, and the back stairwell as down only. Just as with classrooms and hallways, we are not allowing any food in the Library this year. Please eat your meals in the areas on campus where eating is expected. You may still bring a beverage (as long as it has a cover on it) into the Library. Thank you for your help keeping the CSS community safe!
