Researching a Chemistry Topic

Black and white photograph of female chemist in analytical chemistry lab.This guide will help you locate books, articles, and other sources that can help with your chemistry research.

There are several types of sources you will want to look for in researching your chemistry assignments:

  1. Print books: these resources live in the library (whether in the stacks, the reference area, or at the reserve desk) and some may be checked out for as long as 28 days.

  2. Ebooks: many reference books and nonfiction books can be found in electronic format.

  3. Articles: come from periodicals (newspapers, magazines and scholarly journals). The library owns some periodicals in print and gives you access to many more via our online databases.

  4. Films and Videos: links to films on chemistry topics.
