Library Resources in Chemistry

Chemistry Resources



The Campus Libraries have many chemistry resources available, from books to e-books, and from full text article databases to journal subscriptions.

Chemistry Resources



The purpose of this LibGuide is to introduce some of the resources available in the Campus Libraries in the field of Chemistry. The various types of library materials useful in research are described along with some examples of each type. This guide is not a comprehensive listing of sources, but it is intended to be a starting point from which students can begin their research according to their specific needs.
