New Web of Science Resources

The Web of Science database platform has added a wide range of new component databases, including Book Citation Index to find book citation data from 2005 on, Data Citation Index to find published datasets, Derwent Innovations Index, Zoological Record, various international search options and more. These resources can be found by clicking the orange check-box next to Web of Science Core Collection (the default) to open the drop-down menu showing component databases. Check with your Subject Librarian to learn more about any of these new additions to the Web of Science.

BioCyc Database Collection

This previously open collection of databases is now being offered as a community supported, nonprofit resource. Drawing from over 60,000 publications, BioCyc provides data for metabolic pathways and genomes for a variety of organisms, with tools for analyzing the data.  There is  particularly rich and professionally-curated data for intensively researched species like Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and  Clostridium difficile. For more information, contact Sally Wyman, Chemistry and Physics Librarian, or Enid Karr, Biology and Earth & Environmental Sciences Librarian.
