BCHM 496 - Complex Systems

A guide that covers using the library's search engine, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar, and SciFinder.

Searching ScienceDirect

The library's search tool is great for finding a lot of items, but sometimes it doesn't show everything that can be found in individual databases. The library subscribes to many publisher databases, such as American Chemical Society Journals, Annual Reviews, ScienceDirect, SpringerLink, and Wiley Online Library. These databases include the full text of the journal articles that each publishes.

In the tutorials below, we will see how to use ScienceDirect, but the other databases are similar.
