BIOSIS, accessed through Web of Science, is a citation index in the life sciences covering molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, endocrinology, genetics, neurosciences, infectious diseases, ecology and organismal biology.
This three volume set is designed for the use of students and professionals and covers basic research, and topics of interest to the general public and environmental lawyers. Emphasis is on research rather than advocacy.
This 5 volume set covers physical, chemical, biological, and ecological dimensions of global environmental change; causes and consequences of global environmental change; and social and economic dimensions of global environmental change.
EPA leads the nation's environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts by developing and enforcing regulations, performing environmental research, sponsoring voluntary partnerships and programs, furthering environmental education, and publishing information.
Information on this website has been developed by toxicologists and chemists within the Extension Service of the land-grant universities listed below. A major goal has been to develop unbiased information in a form understandable by the non-expert, and to make that information fully searchable and selectively retrievable.
JSTOR is a database consisting of full-text articles from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals from nearly every discipline taught at Calvin. Coverage for each journal begins with the first volume, with coverage ending for most titles three and five years ago. A growing number of journals now have coverage up to the present!
The Oxford Research Encyclopedias (OREs) offer long-form overview articles written, peer-reviewed, and edited by leading scholars. The OREs cover both foundational and cutting-edge topics in order to develop an anchoring knowledge base for major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences and sciences. Multi-media features embedded in the articles, along with cross-referenced links to related content, will further expand the utility and scope of the OREs.
Currently, as of February 2019, Hekman Library subscribes to two subject areas: Climate Science and International Studies. There are 15 areas available for purchase. We will likely be adding to this collection gradually.
Science.gov is a search engine for government science information and research results. Currently in its fourth generation, Science.gov provides search of more than 50 million pages of science information with just one query, and is a gateway to over 1,800 scientific Web sites.
Web of Science is the world's largest, high-quality interdisciplinary database back to 1965. All subject areas are covered, but the sciences are covered very well. WoS is easy to use, but it has many advanced features that make it an excellent tool for advanced researchers. See the Web of Science page for searching instructions.
You can search all these databases, or select only one.
Web of Science (Arts & Humanities Index, Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Index)
BIOSIS (the leading biological sciences database)
Current Contents (current awareness database covering more than 7,000 journals)
WorldCat (Public) is a global network of library content. This WorldCat site provides some services and functionality not offered on the other WorldCat site, but the content is identical. WorldCat is ideal for locating research sources not owned by Calvin so that the sources can be acquired through InterLibrary Loan.
The Zoological Record is the world's leading taxonomic reference and oldest continuing database of animal biology. It covers the traditional areas of zoology, but it excludes or covers selectively the more experimental & applied topics. Contains full-text links.
