The VIU Library has eBooks on a wide range of subjects. You can access these eBooks from on or off campus using your Library ID and PIN.
The following list provides examples of keywords that can be used to search for books/ebooks on topics in virology.
When searching in LibrarySearch, 'and' is the default between terms, so searching for: virus society, searches for: virus and society.
Use quotations around two or more words to search for a concept/phrase. For example: "immune response", "viral protein*".
(Search for the titles of books and articles in the same way, using quotations around the titles.)
Note: Use the symbol * to search a keyword with various endings. For example, searching: vaccin* will search for: vaccine, vaccines, vaccination, and vaccinations:
“acquired immune deficiency”
history (of virology)
“human immunodeficiency virus”
impact (of viral disease)
“virus host interaction”
virus* “therapeutic agent*”
Note: Also search specifically using virus family names or specific species names.
