Environmental Health and Toxicology Specialized Information Services

National Library of Medicine's SIS, Specialized Information Services, website at http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/enviro.html offers Topics, websites and databases that are important to the curricular needs of CSUN's Department of Environmental Health & Toxicology.

The image below of the Specialized Information Services website has been marked with red arrows or red checks to point out links of most interest. It is often very useful to type a keyword search in Search Toxnet for: box. The words you type will be searched in the listed databases. This simultaneous search of the Toxnet databases on hazardous chemicals, environmental health and chemical releases is quite useful for quick overviews.

If you connect to PubMed or a subset of PubMed from the SIS website instead of the links in either CSUN Library's website or Environmental Health Multisearch you will most likely be missing the Find Text icon associated with CSUN's link to PubMed at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?otool=cacsunlib. Often you need to find the article itself and Find Text is very helpful in letting you know if the article is available online and in what database, in print in the library, or if you need to request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
