BIOSIS is the world's largest abstracting and indexing service for biological and biomedical research literature. BIOSIS processes approximately 550,000 items each year from primary research and review journals, books, monographs, and conference proceedings. The BIOSIS information system, a pool of material totaling over 11.5 million citations, is accessible from the MBARI Library web page.

Dave Coleman of MBARI and Morisa Steuerman of BIOSIS will present a workshop that will show you how to:
Effectively search this important literature source
Use the MBARI document delivery system to get access to the articles that you find
Discuss changes and improvements in the database that will occur in the near future

Next: Managing fisheries via ITQs
