Welcome BIO 155 Students!

This guide will help you with lab reports and provide a basic understanding of how to find and use information effectively. Here you will find links to the following:

  • Databases covered in class
  • Ways to find background information
  • Research tips
  • Appropriate citation format for your lab reports
  • Plagiarism policies and tutorials

Please feel free to contact me or any other personnel at the Agricultural Information Center or Young Library if you have any questions. Good luck this semester!



Library Databases Used in Class

  • Web of Science Core Collection
    Web of Science Core Collection is the main database you will use when searching for articles in this class. It contains links to >12 million journals and >46 million records.
  • InfoKat (UK Libraries' Catalog)
    Provides access to the UK Libraries' catalog of books, journals (by title, NOT by article), and other resources.
  • PsycINFO
    Use this database to find the article on territoriality in field crickets by Alexander that you will need for class.
  • PubMed (University of Kentucky)
    PubMed is an NIH-run database of scientific articles pertaining to the medical sciences.

More Science Resources

  • BIOSIS Previews and Biological Abstracts/RRM
    Covers original research reports and reviews in biological and biomedical areas, including botany, zoology, and ecology. Includes content summaries, books, meeting abstracts, papers, and posters.
  • Google Scholar (UK)
    Allows you to search across many disciplines and sources for articles, theses, books, and more from academic publishers, professional societies, universities, and other websites. This is NOT specific to Biology. If searching from off-campus, be aware that you will need to access the articles through the UK website for free full-text.
