Who We Are
From the Dean
Know the Libraries
We developed this series of tutorials to help students become better finders and users of information in general, and scientific information in particular. While these tutorials use biology examples, like the PubMed and Web of Science databases, they are useful for students in other science classes. These tutorials are .swf files, and we assume that you have the free Flash™ Player software (v. 8 or higher) installed on your computer.
Additionally, all tutorials except for tutorial 1 have question slides scattered throughout so you can check your understanding of what's being covered..
