Biology: Research Guide

This guide will lead to resources on the subject of biology.


Welcome! You've found the biology research guide. Hopefully these library resources will be helpful for your lab reports and research papers.

Getting Started (specifically devoted to life sciences)

Library databases are better than Google when you have a more specific research topic because each library database covers a specific subject discipline. WFU has subscriptions to over 300 databases in all academic subjects. WFU students can use these while on the WFU campus network, or off-campus using the Virtual Private Network (VPN) via Cisco AnyConnect.

Other Databases (still excellent for life sciences)
