Database Changes: BIOSIS, Zoological Record, and Medline
Some of the databases you use most will have a new look in 2007. We now subscribe to BIOSIS, Zoological Record, and Medline, via the ISI Web of Knowledge, the same interface you use for Web of Science/Science Citation Index. This is a convenient new way to search the journal literature in the life sciences; it is now possible to search multiple databases using the new CrossSearch feature.
We no longer subscribe to these databases via SilverPlatter/WebSPIRS. The web addresses for Zoological Record, BIOSIS, and Medline have been changed on the Library’s Articles and Database Web Page.
Here are the new URLs:
Web of Science / Science Citation Index (1900-)
BIOSIS Previews / Biological Abstracts (1926-)
Zoological Record (1864-)
Medline (Same data as PubMed, more advanced search features) (1950-)
CrossSearch (Allows you to search all of these and more simultaneously)
TUTORIALS If you are not familiar with the Web of Knowledge interface, browse their recorded training sessions at http://scientific.thomson.com/support/recordedtraining/
ASSOCIATED SITES -Index to Organism Names (ION contains all the animal, plant, and virus names data found within the Thomson/ISI BIOSIS literature databases)
-Biology Browser (Web Search Engine)
