You now have full electronic access to LWW Health Library’s Board Review Series!
The Board Review Series is a database that covers material in the primary basic sciences such as gross anatomy, embryology, neuroscience, and more that are addressed on the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 exams. Each concise, yet comprehensive book takes an outline approach, and contains review questions, clinical information, full-color illustrations, photographs, and tables.
Springer Nature Experiments is a new platform that searches four protocol and method resources simultaneously: Springer Protocols, Nature Protocols, Nature Methods, and Protocol Exchange, providing easy access to more than 50,000 protocols and methods.
Unique indexing means that you can quickly find protocols and methods for a particular organism, common and emerging techniques, or videos.
The summary page for each protocol and method provides an abstract, version history, figures and videos from the article, and the number of citations the article has received. This information helps you choose the best protocol or method for your work without scanning multiple articles on different sites. When you find one that works, then you can click through to the full text, available through Tufts Libraries.
