The Digital Library at Dartmouth has an eResources portal that can help you begin your research in the Sciences. Librarians have organized library resources specifically for Dartmouth students. The folders are organized by academic discipline. Each folder includes links to resources that are licensed for Dartmouth community use only and sites that are freely available on the web.
Also included in the folders are links to Research Guides that can help you get started with your topic. You should also contact the Subject Specialist who wrote these materials, as he or she can be an invaluable asset to your research.
Click on a folder (for example, Biological Sciences, Engineering , or Physics) to access links to electronic resources such as indexes, bibliographies, subject-specific encyclopedias, and research guides.
In addition, the website of the Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries has a helpful collection of links that supports both undergraduate research and the activities of the Dartmouth Medical School and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
In addition to the library's excellent resources, the Web offers many sites that can can help you locate sources. For instance, Diana Hacker's online text, Research and Documentation Online provides a hub site through which to access Science research links. This site also provides general advice re: researching in the Sciences, as well as information on documenting sources.
