- Academic Search Premier
Broad database with both Academic and general periodicals articles. Many fulltext, though some citation only. Provided by Electronic Library for Minnesota.
Primarily Agricultural research. Citations only. A database provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. No Find it! at WSU service.
This database has full-text access to back issues over one hundred core scholarly journals, including Botany and Ecology titles. Most JSTOR journals only contain the fulltext if the article is more than five years old, so there are few current articles.
This database has all scholarly articles, mostly from sciences, though some social sciences. Citations from 1980 to present. Some full text starting in 1993, more full text from 1997 to the present.
Medical and Nursing Databases
- WSU Annual Review Subscriptions
Links to all of the titles in the "Annual Review of ..." series to which WSU subscribes, including Cell Biology, Ecology, Physiology and Plant Biology.
Comprehensive index to medical literature from the National Library of Medicine. Citations to articles as far back as the 1950s.
- PubMed MeSH Tutorial
An online tutorial to how to seach for Medical Subject Headings and combine them in the PubMed database.
- PubMed Filter Instructions
NOTE: PubMed eliminated its "Limits" page in the summer of 2012. It now uses what it calls "filters" to narrow results. This link goes to help pages regarding filters.
The Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health (CINAHL) database provides authoritative coverage of the literature related to nursing and allied health. Provided by ELM: Electronic Library for Minnesota.
Genetic and Genomic Databases
- Nursing & Allied Health Sciences: SAGE
This database includes the full text of 26 journals, some going back 23 years.
[Resource no longer available]
- Online Mendelian Inheritance of Man (OMIM)
OMIM is produced by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which is within the NIH. It allows users to search a catalog of human genes and genetic disorders with links to PubMed and sequnce records. NOTE: This link provides access to OMIM through the WSU "MyNCBI" account, so that the citations are linked to the "Find It! at WSU" button.
- ENCODE Project
ENCODE Project at UCSC is a data portal to access genome information from the Encyclopedia Of DNA Elements, which was started by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) to identify all functional elements in the human genome sequence.
- Model Genome ENCODE project
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) model organism ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements (modENCODE) Project will try to identify all of the sequence-based functional elements in the C. elegans and Drosophila melanogaster genomes.
- Entrez Cross-Database Search
This multi-database search engine from the National Center for Biotechnology Information allows the user to search in PubMed as well as OMIM and other genome and protein databases at the same time. NOTE: This link provides access to Entrez through the WSU "MyNCBI" account, which links your search to the "Find It! at WSU" button for ease in finding the article once you have found the citation.
- Gene Expression Omnibus
The GEO is a gene expression/molecular abundance repository supported by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (which also runs PubMed). GEO serves as a public repository for a wide range of high-throughput experimental data. These data include single and dual channel microarray-based experiments measuring mRNA, miRNA, genomic DNA (arrayCGH, ChIP-chip, and SNP), and protein abundance, as well as non-array techniques such as serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE), mass spectrometry peptide profiling, and various types of quantitative sequence data.
- KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
A "biological systems" database integrating both molecular building block information and higher-level systemic information. This site has data on many genomes that have been sequenced (from humans and chimps to Nanoarchaeota), as well as cellular protein data. One can easily jump between organisms in an exploration of a sequence.
Other Databases that have some Biological Resources
- HapMap: Human Genetic Haplotype Map
The Project is a multi-country effort to identify and catalog genetic similarities and differences in human beings. Using the information in the HapMap, researchers will be able to find genes that affect health, disease, and individual responses to medications and environmental factors. Using the HapMap, one can find genetic differences between ethnic groups that may influence the likely effectiveness of medication within that group.
- Electronic Collections Online
General subjects. Miscellaneous full-text journals available to the WSU community; includes Academic Press Journals.
- FirstSearch Complete
Over 60 different databases available covering all areas of study. Includes: Dissertation Abstracts International, and others.
- Google Scholar
The Google search engine focused on scholarly content. Powerful fulltext searching, but sometimes the results found are not full text unless a fee is paid. This link goes through the WSU Library Proxy server to give patrons the link to WSU's "Find it!" button.
PsycINFO provides access to international literature in psychology and related disciplines. Has articles on Neurology.
- Science Online
Primarily high school audience. Provided by Facts on File, supplies diagrams, biographies, definitions, timelines and essays on science topics for the classroom.
The combined catalog from over 72,000 libraries, including the Library of Congress through FirstSearch.
- WSU Genetics Databases
Links to online genomic databases, such as the Online Mendelian Inheritance of Man, on the WSU Library web site.
