Guide to Life Science Information: Home

A general guide to resources in the life sciences, at IUP and beyond.

Information in the Life Sciences

Life Science is a broad field of study with dozens of specialties. Library materials in the life sciences range from items tightly focused on specific areas, such as radiation biology, while others are broader in scope and contain information relevant to numerous sub-disciplines.

For an excellent guide to how life science literature is organized and the best ways to research it, check out Using the Biological Literature: A Practical Guide, by Diane Schmidt (you can find it in the Stapleton Reference collection, at call number [REF] QH303.6 .D38 2002).

For more information on how scientific information is created, managed, and organized, check out the Searching the Scientific Literature library guide.
