The Biomedical Library has a new website optimized for mobile devices available at http://bl.southalabama.edu/m. The mobile website includes information about our locations and hours and features links to library resources optimized for small screens. One can also use the mobile site to call, email, text, chat, or map a visit to a reference librarian, or to read the library’s news blog.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
