Biology: Home

Welcome

The study of biology at WVWC is a rigorous and intensive process, and students are expected to develop strong skills in finding and using scientific literature to support their own research work.  This guide is intended to help students identify the best resources for study in their field and to introduce students to the wide range of resources available in the library for the study of the biological sciences.

Off-Campus Access

Access to the library's subscription resources is limited to students, faculty, and staff of West Virginia Wesleyan College.  However, users are not required to be on campus to use the library resources. 

As of November 2019, off-campus access is now authenticated using OpenAthens. The old proxy login (last name and P number) no longer works. In order to access resources off-campus:

1.  Click on the database of choice.

2.  You should see a page that looks like this:

3.  Select "West Virginia Wesleyan College" as your option.

4.  You should receive a login prompt that looks like this:

5.  Your username will be your full Wesleyan e-mail address (include the @wvwc.edu). Your password should be the same as the one you use to access WebAdvisor or Blackboard.

If you have any problems logging on, call the library front desk (304-473-8013) or email librarian@wvwc.edu for assistance.
