Biological Abstracts now complete!

Biological Abstracts, the premier database for the life sciences, is now searchable online from 1926 to the present, thanks to the Library's recent purchase of all backfiles. What does this mean? In the past, a BU researcher could search BioAbs from 1997 to the present online but would have to use the print indexes for materials indexed between 1926 - 1996. Now, researchers can search virtually all the life sciences literature, including biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, pre-clinical and experimental medicine, pharmacology, zoology, agriculture, and veterinary science, in one database containing over 11.3 million references.

To access Biological Abstracts, visit the Library's Find Articles and More pages, including Databases A-Z and Databases by Subject > Biological Sciences and other pages. As always, if you have any questions, please contact the Reference Desk at 570-389-4204.
