SciFinder Scholar (Access to Chemical Abstracts)
This database can be accessed only on the four sit-down computers near the front of the library.
American Chemical Society Publications
This database searches the publications of the American Chemical Society. All of the articles are available in full-text.
STN Easy (Alternative Access to Chemical Abstracts)
This database can be accessed only using the log-ins on your handout. Access is limited to certain times of the day, as specified on your handout
General Science Databases:
This database offers broad coverage of science journals. Our access level is mainly citations, however there are some full text journals available.
GenSciAbs (General Science Abstracts through FirstSearch)
Broad coverage of science literature, geared for a wider audience of people. It covers chemistry journals, but with less depth than the more specialized databases. A significant amount of journals are available in full-text.
ProQuest (Sciences Module)
Scroll down on the ProQuest main page to find the Sciences Module. This database is more generalized and geared toward a broad audience.
Additional Specialized Databases of Interest:
This FirstSearch database covers topics related to agriculture, natural resources, forestry, animal sciences and botany.
This FirstSearch database covers broadly all areas of life sciences.
This FirstSearch database covers leading publications in agriculture, biology, ecology and forestry.
This is the largest health and medical research database. It covers all areas of medicine, nursing and human health sciences.
Health Reference Center Academic

Locating the text of Journal Articles:
- 1. Check the link called "Search for full text by journal title" to see if we have that journal in one of the other online databases (type the Journal Name in the search box, not the article title)
- 2. Check the Library Catalog to see if we carry that journal in print
- 3. Put in an Interlibrary Loan Request
