Alternatively you can go to the library's citation linker and enter the citation information to see if we have online access to a particular article. If we have neither the online or print version, try Interlibrary Loan (above).
- NOTE: IF YOU GO DIRECTLY TO THE PUBLIC SITE FOR A JOURNAL, YOU WILL OFTEN BE DENIED ACCESS, EVEN IF CSULB SUBSCRIBES TO THE JOURNAL. FOR THOSE JOURNALS YOU MUST USE THE FOLLOWING METHOD TO GET ACCESS:
- To access an electronic version of an article, go to the library's Search Page. Enter the title of the journal in the window and click Go. Then look for the listing identified as an electronic resource (book icon with an e on one page) and click on it. Then click on the link "View availability and full-text electronic issues."
For the journal Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, locating a paper requires knowing which section of the journal a particular volume is in. The BBA Decoder is a table that provides this information.
Finally, the following services provide access to online journals to library users and may be accessed directly from campus computers or from home computers with use of a CSULB ID and library PIN number. If you have trouble locating the link to the internet version of a journal, you can try using these web sites.
- Science DirectWiley Interscience
- ACS Web Editions
- JSTOR provides access to older issues of Science, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and the publications of the Royal Society of London.
Free Software Downloads (structure viewers, some with built-in browsers)
Structure Browsers -- where you can locate a structure file for a protein or nucleic acid
Resource Sites -- two related sites maintained by Eric Martz of the University of Massachusetts with lots of useful links for molecular modeling
Images -- In addition to the Resource Sites listed above, these sites contain links to tutorials with interactive images of protein and nucleic acid molecules, as well as other image collections. (Some of these can be viewed only if Chime has been installed on your computer (see above under Downloads) -- try these in the Student Access to Science computer lab in FO5-116.)
Tutorials and Instructions
- These sites are for looking up protocols for many procedures in biochemistry and molecular biology.
Sites with information about jobs in biotechnology and related areas.
