Collection Development Policy | Library Resources | School of Molecular Biosciences | Owen Science & Engineering Library

The Owen Library contains many resources for students and faculty interested in Microbiology. If you have any questions not answered on the WSU Libraries website, or would like to request a book or journal on any subject related to Microbiology, please contact Betty Galbraith. For questions about the academic program at WSU, please see the School of Molecular Biosciences and the School of Biological Sciences.

Find a Book or Compilation:

  • Find a book from here at WSU
  • Find/borrow a book from WSU, nearby schools and the world using WorldCat
  • Borrow a book from anywhere in the world using InterLibray Loan
  • Request that we buy a book for the WSU library (don't forget your WSU contact info!).
  • Come by and browse the shelves! Here are the call numbers where you can find most biology topics on the 5th floor of the Owen Science and Engineering Library. Look for QR.

Find an Article or Conference Presentation:

  • For known items, look for the journal title in our Library Catalog to see if we own the issue that you need.
  • If you need to find articles on a subject, but don't know where to begin, there are a large number of places to search. WSU pays for some resources to help:
    • Go to the WSU Libraries' databases of Microbiology journal articles
    • To search within any one of these databases, click on the name and it'll take you to that database.
    • When you find an article, watch for the button:
      • Click on this button and the computer will open a new window where you can see if we have an article electronically, check the catalog for it, or borrow it from another library.
  • For articles published prior to our online indexes, check the library for our print indexes. Examples:
    • Biological Abstracts:
      • 1926-1995 (Owen A&I South Alcove)
      • 1969-present (BIOSIS online)
    • Biological Abstracts/RRM: This is the major indexing source in biology for reviews, reports and meetings.
