You can use the library to learn more about Henrietta Lacks, HeLa cells, or any related issues.
The UMW libraries offer over 400,000 books, including over 80,000 e-books, plus over 200 electronic databases that contain millions of articles.
You can use the library databases to find articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers.
Before you look in any individual database, you may want to look in Quest. Quest is the library's all-in-one search tool. It covers the library catalog and most of the library's 200+ databases. When you search in Quest, you're searching in all of these places simultaneously.
If Quest gives you too many results, or if you'd like to focus your search in one subject area, try one of these individual databases.
To find books in the library, use the library catalog.
Each book in the catalog is tagged with subject terms that tell you what the book is about. Click on any of these subject terms to view books tagged with that term.
