Thanks for getting in touch! If you want to find resources on a specific scientific organism, here are the 3 best places to search:

1. Start with our Gale Virtual Reference Library.  You can get to it from the link on the bottom of our homepage under "Top Databases." See it here:

Gale Virtual Reference Library is a collection of reference eBooks that have great coverage of topics like this. If you go there and search the broader genus name, "camplylobacter," you'll find a whole bunch of related results to help you get an overview of your topic. (Even those these look like webpages, they're really entries from books.)

2. To find print books, use our homepage search box (Books tab). In order to locate relevant results, though, you'll need to broaden your search terms and use keywords like germs, microbes, or bacteria. We do have books, such as A Field Guide to Bacteriathat include information about camplylobacter. If you can't find anything that works for your topic, submit a request using our online form!

3. Finally, you can find lots of scientific articles about your organism in our awesome, all-Science all-the-time database, ScienceDirect (also under "Top Databases" on our homepage). There you can search the exact name of your organism and come up with lots of great stuff. Try common and latin names for the best results.

If there are more/other resources you need, just let us know!
