This is just a small sample of what you have available through UPRM General Library. We encourage you to explore our full list of databases and electronic resources, which you can view through the following link: A-Z Databases. When you access the list, you can open the menu titled "All Subjects" and select the "Biología/Biology" option. This will limit the list to resources that are recommended for this discipline.


Multidisciplinary databases

These are multidisciplinary databases that you can use to conduct searches on biology topics. To access them, go to A-Z Databases.

If you are looking for a specific research article that you know the title of, a good option is to look it up in Google Scholar.

If you conduct a search in Google Scholar while you are at UPRM or while connected to the UPRM network, you may have full text access to a greater portion of your search results, since several of these might be available through UPRM General Library.
