Databases can be very particular and each one is different.  CSUSM has over 150 different databases with different subjects and materials. For BIOL 404, the recommended databases are listed below.

To access the full text, look for PDF or Get It! at CSUSM

If an article is not available via full text, click the "Request this Item" button in the CSUSM Library catalog. The Library will order the article for you. It will take approx. 2-4 days to receive the article electronically. If not button appears, go to the main ILL page and input the information for your source manually.

NOTE: All databases can be used off-campus with your student id/password.  Start at the CSUSM Library website to access the database or you will not have Get It! at CSUSM links.
