Introduction to Chemistry research

Welcome to the chemistry library guide (LibGuide). This page will include online resources and some print resources for chemistry research. Please contact the liaison librarian if you don't know where to start or have a specific information need.

Most chemists will go to 1 of 2 resources while investigating a topic: the journal literature or the patent literature. To get into the chemical literature most chemists will start with Chemical Abstracts. Students can now access Chemical Abstracts via SciFinder. See the liaison librarian to set up a SciFinder account. The patent information is available from the U.S. Patent Office.

This page is broken down by the major divisions within chemistry. Use the tabs above to research your topic. The current contents of the Journal of the American Chemical Society is listed below. If you need some ideas for research topics, that is a useful place to start.
