The BIOSIS Citation Index database is an excellent database for biology topics. BIOSIS coverage is from 1926 to present and it includes around 6000 journals, conference proceedings, books, & technical reports in all aspects of biological sciences including biological oceanography, developmental biology, ecology, marine biology, molecular biology, and psychology. Use the "Cited Reference Search" tab on top of screen to search for lists of articles citing your reference.
1990-present. Searchable full-text research articles from journals, preprints, conference proceedings & technical reports, providing citation counts & links within & to each paper. Best for computer science; also covers bioinformatics, chemistry, physics.
1884-present. Engineering Index is best for locating articles in aerospace, civil, structural, mechanical engineering. Also covers biomedical, ocean, coastal, chemical, electrical, computer engineering, and nanotechnology.
Laboratory "cookbooks" for cell biology, molecular biology, nucleic acid chemistry, pharmacology, protein science, bioinformatics, cell biology, cytometry, genetics, immunology, toxicology, microbiology, and neuroscience.

2007-. JCR Science provides statistical data on the relative importance of over 5900 journals in science and technology. Journals are evaluated on impact factor, immediacy of content, article counts, cited half life & source data.
From April 1, 2015, the UC San Diego Library has arranged for a two-year trial period of over 26,000 videos available through Kanopy. The videos come from leading producers such as the BBC, California Newsreel, Criterion Collection, First Run Features, Kino Lorber and PBS, with more content added each year. Many of the films are from independent and specialty producers, with a focus on documentary films. Use is limited to currently enrolled UCSD students, employees, and faculty, staff. Faculty may screen these films in the classroom and they may also be used across campus to non-paying audiences, such as organizations and clubs, training, and in residence life.
