Annual Reviews offer a comprehensive and timely collection of critical reviews written by leading scientists. Annual Reviews is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the worldwide scientific community with a useful and intelligent synthesis of the primary research literature for a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. Each year, Annual Reviews critically reviews the most significant primary research literature to guide researchers to the principle contributions of their field and help them keep up to date in their area of research. Each article is its own search engine, providing a gateway to the essential primary research literature referenced within each topic.

JSTOR Arts and Sciences I, II, and III Interdisciplinary Collections
This database archives over 394 journals in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Each of the three core Arts & Sciences Collections introduces new academic disciplines into the archive. The Arts & Sciences Complement enables institutions to build upon these core collections, adding new journals in existing disciplines and cross-disciplinary fields over time. There are no overlaps (titles included in more than one collection) among the Arts & Sciences Collections. The Biological Sciences Collection is an interdisciplinary archive of journals covering the life sciences. The Biological Sciences Collection has minimal overlap with the Arts & Sciences I Collection and is JSTOR's first multidisciplinary collection branching out into the natural and applied sciences.
This resource is a search engine that provides access to Chemical Abstracts and MEDLINE. These resources index journal articles, book chapters, patents, conference proceedings, technical reports, and dissertations as well as book reviews and biological information.

A FEW RECOMMENDED RESOURCES:
Chemistry Subject Guide
Information on materials by subject are in Magale Library's reference area, stacks call numbers, and periodicals. Also provided are web sites, electronic journals, electronic texts, and online associations to further research in each area.
Digital Lab Techniques Manual (MIT OpenCourseWare) • http://ocw.mit.edu/resources/res-5-0001-digital-lab-techniques-manual-spring-2007/
The "Digital Lab Techniques Manual" is a series of videos designed to help you prepare for your chemistry laboratory class. Each video provides a detailed demonstration of a common laboratory technique, as well as helpful tips and information. These videos are meant to supplement, and not replace, your lab manual and assigned reading. In fact, you will most benefit from watching the videos if you have already read the appropriate background information. To be a great experimentalist, you must understand both theory and technique! If you have questions about what you see, make sure to ask your TA or your instructor.
NIST Chemistry WebBook • http://webbook.nist.gov/chemistry/
Provides thermochemical, thermophysical, and ion energetics data compiled by NIST under the Standard Reference Data Program.
National Science Foundation: Division of Chemistry • http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=CHE
This is a website devoted to chemistry that includes ideas about funding opportunities, awards, news, events, discoveries as well as publications and career opportunities.
ScienceWorld, Wolfram Research, Chemistry • http://scienceworld.wolfram.com/chemistry/
This resource contains budding encyclopedias of astronomy, scientific biography, chemistry, and physics. It is written adn maintained by Eric Weisstein as a public service for scientific knowledge and education. Although it is often difficult to find explanations for technical subjects that are both clear and accessible, this web site bridges the gap by placing an interlinked framework of mathematical exposition and illustrative examples at the fingertips of every internet user.
