EVS380: Environmental Toxicology: Finding Sources

Where to Find Articles

Databases are a great place to find scholarly journal articles and other sources for your project. Each database includes articles on a different subject area.

If the full text isn’t right there, click the Find It button. If we don’t have the article, you can request it from another library by clicking the “get this article or book chapter” link. (The turnaround time on this is usually about 1-3 business days.)

Toxicant Info

ToxTown (National Library of Medicine) is a resource to learn more about a variety of toxicants (great for identifying a toxicant for your project). 

TOXNET® (TOXicology Data NETwork) is a group of databases covering chemicals and drugs, diseases and the environment, environmental health, occupational safety and health, poisoning, risk assessment and regulations, and toxicology.

Use TOXNET to find:

  • Specific chemicals, mixtures, and products
  • Chemical nomenclature
  • Chemicals that may be associated with a disease, condition or symptom
  • Chemicals associated with consumer products, occupations, hobbies, and more
  • Special toxic effects of chemicals in humans and/or animals
  • Citations from the scientific literature
