SOMi 220: Core Topics in Biomedical Sciences: Home

Welcome to the UC San Diego Biomedical Library's Online Guide for SOMi220

Use this guide as a starting point for your library research this summer.  The tabs regarding Background Info, Clinical Info & Drug Info provide you with links to many of the key resources on these topics.  If you need details on how to search, you can find book searching details under the background info tab and article searching details under the clinical info tab.  

Once you have some familiarity with the library resources, you can just jump in via one of the libraries web sites.  If you are looking for the clinical resources, try the Online Clinical Library.

To set up ENCRYPTED WIRELESS on your laptop, go to the site below and select your operating system.  Detailed directions with illustrations will guide you through the process.
