Biology at the Göttingen State and University Library

On this specialist page you will find information on biology from the SUB Göttingen: access to currently acquired biological literature, to biological databases and journals and the services offered in the areas of electronic publishing in general and open access publishing in particular.


The printed and electronic holdings of the SUB Göttingen, its divisional libraries and many institute libraries of the University of Göttingen, including the libraries of the Faculty of Biology and Psychology, are contained in the Göttingen University Catalog (GUK). Under the menu item 'thematic search' on this specialist page you will find a systematic search entry across subject areas for the targeted search for biological literature in the GUK.


The discovery service GöDiscovery contains a much larger data pool for literature searches. In addition to the holdings of the Göttingen University Catalog, here you will find references to many articles from locally available printed journals and articles from electronic journals and e-books that are accessible in full text. In an expanded search area in GoDiscovery you will find not only the locally available literature, but also media from other libraries and a large number of additional articles. Printed media that is not available locally can usually be ordered via interlibrary loan.
