How to Find Books in the BEHS Catalog
The library has a lot of books on the topics you'll be studying this semester. When you're using a catalog do a simple search with just a word or a very brief phrase. Long Google-like searchs won't work.
Example: For books on drug-resistant bacteria try the phrase - drug resistant or antibiotics. Both searches will provide you with a list of books and DVDs. You'll have to find a book on your topic and is fun to read.
BEHS Catalog - The power search tab allows you to combine two or three ideas. Remember to keep it simple.
Elm Grove Public Library - Use your library card to place a hold.
Brookfield Public Library - Use your library card to place a hold.

We also have books on careers on the College and Career Resource shelf in the library. Please ask a library staff member for help locating the books.
You can also use the BEHS catalog to find books on careers with a science focus. It works best to search for the CCR call number. See the sample below.
How to Decide on a Research Topic
These databases provide great science articles from highly respected sources.
SIRS Knowledge Source - You can search this database four ways: subject, keyword, advanced, Pro vs. Con.
Science Reference Center (provided by Badgerlink) - You should always construct an ADVANCED SEARCH so you can combine ideas and get a smaller number of articles to review.
You can access online science reference books by using the Gale Virtual Reference Library. You will find interesting articles in the Gale Encyclopedia of Science and the Encyclopdia of Bioethics.
