Ornithological Worldwide Literature (OWL)

NOTE: This resource is no longer available and is scheduled to be removed from the Database Library (8/9/17). OWL is a compilation of citations and abstracts from the worldwide scientific literature that pertain to the science of ornithology. OWL deals chiefly with serial publications such as periodicals but also announces new and renamed journals and provides abstracts of other serial publications, conference proceedings, reports, and doctoral dissertations. Papers dealing exclusively with domestic and pet birds and their husbandry are excluded unless they are applicable to non-domestic birds.
