Chemistry and General Science: Starting Points

SciFinder database and current events topics such as invasive species and climate change

Style Guides

Consult these resources when you need to cite information in your papers.


Here are some good databases that you can use to find journal articles and other resources.


Search the catalog to find books on particular science topics.  For example:

  • Global Warming
  • Genetics
  • Nanotechnology

If your first search brings up too many irrelevant items, try using the Refine by Topic suggestions in the box on the left of the search results screen.

We also have reference books on the sciences that you can use to find general information, background material on a specialized topic, and references to other sources you can use for a project.  These are just a few examples of what we have in the reference collection.
