The databases below are databases specific to the field of chemistry. They feature resources and have special tools and features specific to finding chemistry research.
The databases below are some of the general science databases that may be helpful when researching broad chemistry topics or topics that are interdisciplinary within other science fields.
The database below is mainly for physics but it may be helpful when researching chemistry topics.
Sometimes you need to learn more about your research topic or find a popular source (like a magazine or newspaper article) that references a scientific or peer-reviewed journal. The databases below provide some resources for finding popular newspapers or magazines articles that discuss and reference scientific research:
Sometimes you need to learn more about your research topic. The databases below will provide some background information from scholarly encyclopedias:
The databases below are some of the nursing and health science databases that may be helpful when researching biochemistry and pre-med topics.
Use the links below to search for e-books and e-book chapters relating to topics in chemistry.
To search for a physical book in the library catalog, change the "search scope" to select "books and more" then search using keywords and use the sidebar filter to "Show Only > Available in the Library" and "Resource Type > Books".
When you find a book you're interested in, you can either sign into the catalog with your TigerNetID to place a hold and have the book ready for you to pick up at the Learning Commons Desk, or you can use the call number listed in the catalog to go find the book on the shelves.
If you would like to browse for books, look in the QD call number areas in the General Collection on the 2nd floor:
|Call Number Range||Chemistry Topic|
|QD 1-23.3||General Chemistry|
|QD 71-142||Analytical Chemistry|
|QD 146-197||Inorganic Chemistry|
|QD 241-414||Organic Chemistry|
|QD 450-731||Physical & Theoretical Chemistry|
Use the links below to search for electronic scholarly journals in the field of chemistry.
Print journals (or periodicals) are located on the Lower Level of Forsyth Library in the compact shelving. Search by journal title in the library catalog and use the sidebar filter to "Show Only > Available in the Library" and "Resource Type > Journals". For best results, put the journal title in quotation marks.
When you find a journal you're interested in, click the title to view the available format(s), location(s), years/issues available, and call number. Use hte location and call number listed in the catalog to go find the bound periodical on the shelves. Several journals are also available using microfilm, which require you to use the microfilm machines to view the contents.
