Answer:

In the DePaul VuFind Catalog, methods and protocol manuals tend to be classified according to the subject area to which they relate, (e.g. "molecular biology"), followed by the subheading "laboratory manuals." An easy way to find them is to do an Advanced Search in the DePaul VuFind Catalog. Click on the Advanced Search tab, then type "laboratory manuals" in the first box. On the second line of your search, type one or two keywords that describe the subject that your methods/protocols relate to (e.g. "molecular biology").

 

If you don't find what you need, expand your search to include I-Share, a group of libraries in partnership with DePaul. Methods and protocols are also published in the form of journals and other periodical types, as well as books. For instance, if you already know all or part of the title of a specific laboratory methods periodical (e.g. "Current Protocols in Molecular Biology"), search for the journal using our Find Journals by Title search. If you're still having any problem finding laboratory methods or protocols, please stop by a research help desk, or use our online Ask a Librarian service.
