Databases & Effective Searching

Key Resources & Databases

These are a selection of databases available online through FSU but there are many more databases for the wide variety of specializations in biological science. Many of them are accessible through the general "@FSU-Biology Databases" link. Please contact the liaison for Biological Sciences if you have questions or would like assistance locating an item.

Find Full Text

Often databases and indexes only provide a citation.  To find the full text of an article:

  • Click  Find it @ FSU in a database  or "Find it @ FSU" in Google Scholar to be automatically redirected.
  • Enter citation information into FSU's Citation Linker.
  • Search the Library Catalog for the title of the journal.  The catalog record may have a link to the journal's e-text or list of print holdings.
  • Request the article through Interlibrary Loan

Search partial and complete citations in Google Scholar for fast connection to chemistry resources both online and in the University Libraries catalog.
