The ISU Library recently began subscribing to the IEEE-Wiley eBook collection. This provides online access to more than 600 titles published from 1974 to the present. This eBook collection spans numerous content areas, including bioengineering, power and energy, and communication technologies. To access titles in this collection - use IEEE Xplore. When the database screen comes up, on the left side is a link to browse "Books and eBooks" - OR - search by topic and limit your search to eBooks from either the Advanced Search screen or any results screen. These titles will appear in the e-Library's Quick Search in the near future. IEEE plans to add around 40 new books per year to this collection.
Zoological Record has moved to the Web of Knowledge (WoK) platform. This means it is now possible to simultaneously search across Zoological Record, BIOSIS Previews and CAB Abstracts. If you have this database bookmarked, please note the URL has changed. To search just Zoological Record, go to: http://proxy.lib.iastate.edu/login?url=http://www.webofknowledge.com/ZOOREC
Alternatively, from the Article Indexes and Databases page, select Web of Knowledge to automatically search across all databases on the WoK platform.
The Biota of North America Program has a new, FREE, online version of its Synthesis of the North American Flora at: http://bonap.net/plantdb/genus.aspx. It includes local plant distributions, a computer key to the families, and a plant image database. The online version allows users to create plant lists of North American Plants, create an online plant set for a location, an online plant list for attribute keying, and research distributions, attributes, and images. The website works best in Mozilla Firefox and contains hundreds of fully populated data fields and millions of vouchered plant references for American counties. This database will be of value to anyone in North American plant systematics, phytogeography, and rare plant management or natural history. The work is an updated version of the PLANTs database.
