Library Resources

The most comprehensive chemistry research tool is SciFinder Scholar, which requires registration. In these databases you'll find scholarly research and popular articles on the chemical sciences from journals, magazines, and newspapers. Some provide the full text of articles and others provide citations only. If only a citation is provided, use the Get it! button to see if the full text is available through another library resource. To find books on chemistry, search the library's catalog. You may also want to visit the lists for physics, the biological sciences, and mathematics.
