Lehigh University Libraries - Library Guides

RARE/BDSI: Library Resources

Article Databases

The library homepage links to a large number of databases that can help in your research. Library guides are available from the same page that can you help you identify key databases for various subject areas, such as biology, earth sciences, chemistry, or material sciences. Go to the "How To..." section.

When search for articles, look for SFX links to full text or to the interlibrary loan request form, as we discussed in class.

Some tips about using Medline on Pubmed:

  • Use the link above, which is enabled with Lehigh's SFX links, which enable you to access full text or order an item via interlibrary loan.
  • See the related citations feature to find similar articles.
  • See the "cited by" list (if present); these are articles that cite an article you like: great way to build bibliography!
  • You can limit to review articles; review articles published after the one you were assigned to start with can point you toward "primary" literature (in this context, non-review journal articles).

Interlibrary Loan

Use Interlibrary Loan to request a PDF of an article that isn't available at Lehigh or a scanned PDF of a print article that Lehigh owns. You will get an email when the article is ready for download.

Off Campus Access To Library Resources

Use Lehigh's Virtual Private Network (VPN)  to connect to library resources from off campus. Make sure to choose Library/International from the Group drop-down menu when you sign into the VPN. Learn more about the VPN.
