Looking For...

A specific article?

A specific article? If you have the reference info (title, journal title, volume, pages, etc.), try searching the article title on the Library homepage

Do you have a reference with a doi, i.e. something that looks like: 10.1126/science.aaq0200? Search the doi in Google to find the article title, then paste that into the library's search. If the library has a subscription, a record for the article will appear in the results. Click "full text available" to access the article.

Many articles or conference proceedings on a topic? Search the databases on the Find Journal Articles tab
Melting point, boiling point, spectra, etc. of a compound? Use resources listed in the Facts & Properties tab
Background information? Definitions? Textbooks? Use resources listed in the Encyclopedias/Dictionaries Tab
OR, search for textbooks in the Find Books tab
