This guide is intended for students studying zoology at the University of Oxford, although new researchers joining the Department of Zoology may find it useful.
Use this guide to find out about books and online resources for zoology, including ebooks, ejournals, bibliographic databases and archives.
A lot of journals, as well as being available in print, are available online and can be searched via SOLO or eJournals A-Z. Below are a few of the top journals for zoology below but you can find a longer list on the journals page of this guide.
Oxford subscribes to many bibliographic databases. They can be used to locate journal articles, conference proceedings, books, patents, images, data and more. You can find some of the key databases for zoology below, but take a look at the databases page of this guide for more titles.
If you have questions about the collections in zoology or ornithology, please contact the appropriate librarian for further information.
