BMS162 Research Skills Guide: Subject Readings

Your textbook

Good news! ...Your prescribed text is available online through the Library!

However, our access to the textbook is limited. The limitation is to three concurrent users. Follow the guidelines in the video at right to help you get what you need and then free up access to other students.


While the prescribed text is actually the 11th ed. (as above), there is also a more recent edition available through the Library. It's also available as an eBook, also with a limit to three concurrent users:


Both these eBooks are in ProQuest EBook Central. For help with using this platform, go to the Library's Using eBooks workshop recording, and navigate to the section on ProQuest EBook Central.

Finding Subject Readings in Primo Search

To find a reading in Primo Search, or a work for which you have the citation .....

  • For a journal article, search for the article title in double quotation marks
  • For a book, search for the book title. If you get too many results, add an author surname 
  • For a book chapter, you can search by chapter title (in double quotation marks), but to be safe it's probably better to search for the book and then locate the chapter
  • For eReserve and Reserve items, search by the subject code. 

Don't copy and paste in the whole citation - that usually doesn't work!

If you are having difficulty locating an item, contact Tim or the Library.
