Biological Abstracts and Zoological Record Have Moved

Have you noticed? Biological Abstracts (aka BIOSIS) and Zoological Record have recently moved to the Web of Knowledge platform. This means that when you use either of these library databases, the search screen looks just like the screen you see when you search Web of Science. The content of these databases is unchanged. Biological Abstracts indexes 4000 biology journals each year, and covers 1969-present. Zoological Record indexes about 5000 zoology journals, and covers 1978-present. (By comparison, Web of Science covers 8000 journals in all academic subject areas, and goes back to 1965.)

Keep your eye on these resources! Two additional changes are coming soon. Sometime around August 19, there will be a new look to all three databases. You will still be able to do all the searches you do now, but additional features will be available, too. When the new interface comes online, we’ll let you know more about its new features. At about the same time, the coverage of Zoo Record will be expanded all the way back to 1864!

As always, if you have any questions about these or other library resources, please contact your Liaison Librarian
