Start Your Search does not include all library resources, and sometimes searching a smaller, specialized database can be easier and more effective. For example, specialized databases often include advanced searching features and tools for limiting and sorting your results in ways not possible in Start Your Search. Listed on this page are specialized databases for Natural Resources. Use them to find journal articles, news articles, reports, and more.
Note: Much (but not all) of the content from BIOSIS, CAB Abstracts, Environment Complete, GreenFILE, and Wildlife and Ecology should come up in Start Your Search.
Once you've searched a database to find articles, use UC-eLinks to link to a PDF or html file if the full text is not immediately available. Each database is a bit different, but a general rule is: when you see (UC-eLinks icon), click on it to view your article access options, which can range from online full text, to a call number, to an Interlibrary Loan request:
For more information, here's a tutorial on using UC-eLinks.
