When starting your research in chemistry and associated topics, you have to clarify your topic, narrow it down and decide what kinds of sources you will need. These may include print books, scholarly journals, eBooks, databases and websites.
The Library's home page features a search box that functions as a "Google-like" single search. This is a good start to a search. A better approach is to use the WorldCat Discovery tab to initiate an advanced search.
To learn more go to the Doing An Advanced Search Page.
All search engines can be refined or modified. For example in WorldCat Search, searches can be done by subject, title etc. Filters appear beneath the field boxes.
Every database has “limiter” boxes under or to the left of the search fields’ boxes. These filters are different from database to database. Below are filters or refinements for Science Direct.
