Paleontology Library Resources at Yale: Home

A guide to library resources on where to find the literature you need and the databases that are the most helpful for your research.

COVID-19 Updates

Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now (March 16, 2020), all physical library locations are closed until at least March 31, 2020. Remote assistance and digital support services remain available. For up-to-date information, please visit the Library's statement on COVID-19.

This guide contains important information about connecting to a variety of library resources. In addition to the content on the guide, let me stress:

  • QuickSearch Books+ has faceted searching. If you are only looking for online content, after searching, please select "Online" under format.
  • Library staff are still here to support you in your teaching, learning, and research. Please contact me using the information on my profile (below). You may email or schedule a Zoom appointment.

Remember, use the VPN to connect to library resources from off-campus (and, if you experience any issues, clear the cookies specific to the web site you are trying to access and refresh). We have a purchase request form if you need something that is not currently available.
