BIOL 243 (Experiential Learning: Cell Biology and Genetics)

Finding Books

Search the Alaska Library Catalog for books and other materials in the Consortium Library and other libraries in Alaska.


Helpful tips:

   If you know the title of the book, choose Title and enter the title of the book in the search box.

   If you are searching for books on a topic, choose Subject or Keyword.

What do I do if the book is checked out?

If a book that you want is already checked out, you can place a HOLD so the book cannot be renewed and you will be notified when it is returned. 

Locate the item in the catalog and click on Place a Hold on the far right. Enter your UAA student # and PIN (last 4 digits of your student #) and choose the pick-up location.

Citing Sources using RefWorks

Adding Citations from PubMed

Adding references from PubMed is a bit more complicated than from other library databases.  Follow the steps on this How to Guide that describes the process.

More about RefWorks citations....

NOTE! RefWorks will format *most* of your bibliography or list of references in your chosen Output Style.  However, ALWAYS double-check the accuracy of the citations in your bibliography, since RefWorks does NOT:

  • italicize names of species, organisms
  • consistently include author initials if author name is hyphenated
  • always represent journal titles correctly
  • correctly capitalize proper nouns (e.g., names of countries, places, oceans, etc.)


Other Citation Software options

If you don't want to use RefWorks, try one of these other citation management options. These are free, but you may have to create an account to use them.

Be aware that these free sources may not necessarily include the particular citation style you need.

Tip! When citing an article from a journal, remember use the template for a journal article citation, not a website. Yes, the article may be found on the web, but it's important to cite the information from the journal, not the website.
