BIOSIS Previews and PubMed are general databases for nearly all biological topics and are especially important for the molecular and cellular sciences. Relevant e-book collections will also be discussed. Database searching strategies covered include: topic/keyword, title and author searching; using the wildcard and limits; and using the thesaurus/MeSH terms, and search history features. Current awareness (update/alert) services, citation searching, and how to use UCD-eLinks or UC-eLinks will also be discussed. Learn about Journal Citation Reports which indicates the top journals in each discipline. A brief overview of data management tools from the UC Curation Center will be provided.
