Welcome to Summer Research 2019!
This LibGuide will give you an introduction to literature resources you can use during your summer research.
Caroline Gilson, the science librarian, will also be a good human resource. She has an office in the Prevo Science Library and also works over at the ROW Library. (NOTE: Caroline will be out of the office May 25-June 9 and July 5-21.) Caroline is happy to meet for a research consultation, and it may be best to set up an appointment by emailing email@example.com
Prevo Science Library will be open 9am5pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-12noon on Fridays; closed Saturday and Sunday.
Starting Points for Research
Academic Search Complete
Articles (or article summaries) from scholarly journals, newspapers and popular magazines covering most academic disciplines. Some as far back as early 1900's, but mostly since about 1970. Free to all Indiana residents via INSPIRE.in.gov
The ACS Online Journals package provides the full text of over 30 peer reviewed journals and magazines published by the American Chemical Society. The articles are fully searchable and are available in full text in pdf format. The ACS Journal Archives extends the online full text of ACS publications back to their inaugural issues, over 120 years of content.
Literature reviews in biomedical sciences, physical sciences and social sciences.
Articles (or article summaries) from scholarly journals, government and general-interest titles covering environment, global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy and recycling. Free to all Indiana residents via INSPIRE.in.gov
Journal article archive, covering humanities, social sciences and science. Begins with vol. 1, issue 1, 1800's, or even earlier (most titles exclude the most recent 3-5 years; some titles have current issue access).
PubMed was developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). It was developed in conjunction with publishers of biomedical literature as a search tool for accessing literature citations and linking to full-text journals at web sites of participating publishers.
Royal Society of Chemistry Journals Archive
Access to British chemistry journals (some titles 1841-2007; others 2007-present).
Science Direct College Editions
Includes some 1,600 full-text Elsevier journals in four collections: Health Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences & Engineering, and Social Sciences & Humanities. Full-text coverage starts in 1995 or later (depending on journal) and continues to the present.
SciFinder-n is the most comprehensive database for the chemical literature, searchable by topic, author, substances by name or CAS Registry Number, OR use the editor to draw chemical structures, substructures, or reactions. SciFinder-n is the new version of SciFinder.
If you already have a SciFinder account, you will be able to log in to SciFinder-n via the new platform and do not need to set up a new account. If you are new to SciFinder-n, please contact Caroline Gilson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Registration information. You MUST use an email address that ends with "depauw.edu"
