Pick "Chemistry" from the subjects drop down box, and "articles" from the database types drop down box.
Use the three "best bet" databases (ACS, ScienceDirect and SpringerLink)
All of these databases are set to work mainly by keyword searching (as opposed to structured field searching)
Also take a look at PubMed. This is freely available AFTER you graduate, though the links into our other databases won't be. This database is especially useful if your topic is related to medicine or the human body.
Be sure you have an interlibrary loan account as you will likely need to ILL some articles
Getting and Citing your Articles using ACS style - Session 1
Getting your Articles:
If you have a citation, AND it is for an article, then
Use the Search For Journals by Title tool to see if any of our online services have that journal for the date you need or if we have it in paper form.
If we don't seem to have it, make sure you are searching with the complete journal title, not the abbreviated title (Use the CASSI-Journal Abbreviation Search Tool to figure out the full title - you will need this for interlibrary loan if we do not have access)
If we don't have immediate access, then check Google Scholar for a free web copy (unlikely, but still preferred by students)
