Databases & Articles
Outlines strategies for accessing articles, as well as recommended databases for chemistry.
Handbooks, Encyclopedias, and Dictionaries
Separated into narrower subjects (organic, inorganic, polymer, ect.), these print and electronic resources are valuable for finding properties.
Books & eBooks
Recommended books, eBooks, and recently acquired materials.
Shows the subject-specific databases, encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, and research guides. It is particularly useful for subjects you may not be familiar with.
All of the print books are available at the Chemistry Library, unless otherwise noted.
Hover mouse over info icon beside book title for description, if available.
Enter citation information into the Article Finder to determine if we have online access to the full text of a particular article. The Article Finder can search on journal titles and abbreviations (and supplementary volume, issue and page information), ISSN numbers, DOIs, or PMIDs. You can also use the Article Finder to create a permanent link to an article.
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2010, 49(44), 8112
Note if you do not get any results, try entering just the journal title or abbreviation.
Don't despair if you don't find it on Article Finder! try also looking for the journal on e-journals or even google it as a final try. You may be surprised by how much is available for free. If you do find a journal that is freely available but not on our journals list you can contact me and I can get it added. The library system manages over 50 000 journal titles so we do miss some occasionally...
Register for SciFinder here (registrations must be completed on campus; please read all instructions - the link to the registration page is half-way down)

Remember, you can search UTL electronic holdings by journal abbreviations using Article Finder.
DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier, and it looks something like this: 10.1002/anie.201003214. DOIs are used in science to uniquely identify and locate a particular publication. You can bring up the full text of a particular article by entering the DOI in Article Finder.
You can also use a DOI to create a permanent link. Click here to read more about DOIs
