Online Reference Resources

Are you working on a project and wondering what online resources the library might have that can help you? This library website is a great place for you to start your search. Each month the blog will be featuring one resource or a group of similar resources to highlight, but to start we want to give you an overview of what the Online Reference Resources page offers.

The page is divided into five reference types and a home page. Starting on the homepage you can see that it has some tutorials for some of the sights that the library most often recommend for research including PubMed and EBSCO. On the left is a collection of links to all the other research areas we have collected resources for, medical, general, topical, grants, and images and media. The medical and general topics are both organized by the NLM classification system and have resources in a variety of media types from ebooks to videos.

On the medical tab you will find resources on everything from biochemistry to the respiratory system. Including a dictionary of biochemistry and molecular biology, a collection of heart sounds, and a collection of health hotlines. The general reference tab has citation information, dictionaries, and information on law among other resources. No matter what your project the online reference resources page is a good place to start.

Like always if you can’t find any resources for your project on this page, or need help finding more you can contact the library with a quick question for a librarian to answer or set up a consultation to have a longer discussion about your needs.

Happy Holidays!
