BI 88 - Biomedical Science & Society (Smith-Carpenter ): Home


Hello! This course guide has been created for students enrolled in BI 88 Biomedical Science & Society for Summer 2020. This guide has several resources intended to help you find biomedical research for your written and oral final presentation.  


Before using this guide please watch the two videos created by me (Lisa Thornell, Student Engagement & Outreach Librarian) in your Blackboard course:

Video 1- Library Services & Resources Overview (approx. 18 min.)

Video 2- Biology Research tips for your assignment

Citations and Using Reference Lists to Find other Sources

Below is a description of the pages found in the left-hand menu:

  • Biology Research Guide - Research guides provide lists of the best databases and library resources to use based on your information needs. This is where you will find
  • Selected Research Tutorials
    • Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles
    • Identifying Peer-Reviewed/Scholarly Sources
    • Find and Use eBooks
    • Use References List to Help Find More Sources
  • Citation Guides
    • Pick any citation style on this page (APA, MLA, Chicago, IEEE) and stick with it for this assignment! Just be consistent. The citation style you choose will help you craft your bibliography/reference list of the sources you used to do your research AND it will help you create your in-text citations too. Once you pick a style from this guide there is an "Other Resources" section that will provide a link to a sample paper so you can see what the citations looks like.
