Since you are looking for reference information (a basic overview of the topic), the Dictionaries & Encyclopedias tab of the Health Sciences guide will be useful. It contains links to numerous databases that will be helpful for your topic, including:
- Credo Reference
- Gale Virtual Reference Library
- Scientific and Medical Art (SMART) imagebase (for images and video)
When you type in search terms, remember to use nouns or keywords only for your search terms: "muscle cells," myocyte, "muscle fiber," etc.
You may also want to search: "nerve cells" and "blood cells" along with just cells to aid in comparison.
Search tip: Putting quotation marks around a multi-word phrase will keep those words together and will make the database search for those words as a single unit or phrase rather than as two separate words.
