Chemical Engineering Research Guide

The resources used by chemical engineers are available in a variety of formats, from print handbooks and encyclopedias that define concepts and explain processes to online databases of chemical names, formulas and properties.

Finding the Full Text

To find journal articles, use the library's online databases. In the databases, you can conduct keyword, author, title, or subject searching.

  1. Always use the Find It button for possible full text online. Examine any holdings statements to see if we have the volume and issue that the article appears in.
  2. If no full-text available online, then use the Find It button to connect to the library's online catalog to see if the library has the journal in print format, so you can locate the article in the library.
  3. If the library doesn't have the article online or in print, use Interlibrary Loan to get it from another library.
