Our digital library includes campuswide access to CAS SciFinder, Reaxys, the CRC Handbook, the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia, Science of Synthesis (Houben-Weyl), and hundreds of electronic journals in the chemical sciences, including those from the American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry and their archives.
The Chemistry Library's collections total over 100,000 volumes covering chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and food technology. The Library's strong historical journal collection includes over 1,100 titles as far back as 1789. The library holds a complete set of printed Chemical Abstracts from 1907 to 2001, as well as major printed works such as the Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry, the Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic Chemistry, Landolt-Börnstein, and complete sets of the Sadtler Standard Spectra. All materials in the collection, including those in storage, are represented in the Library Catalog.
