Introduction to Finding Information Using the Library Catalog

Welcome to the Library!

Welcome to the library's resource guide for BIO 100 Lab! Use this page to search for information for your lab reports, and as a resource to help you evaluate whether or not a website is credible. The CRAAP test, pictured below, provides a method for identifying whether or not a website you want to use for your lab report is trustworthy.

The resources found under Background Information will help you define the scope of your investigation, get helpful keywords, and brainstorm ideas. Watch the video tutorial to learn how to search the library's catalog for books, Ebooks, streaming videos, reports, and more! To find additional resources, including articles, visit the Biology & Ecology Subject Guide
