Key Resources

Web of Science

Multidisciplinary coverage of journals in the sciences. Indexes the journal literature and tracks article citation histories, creating opportunities for serendipitous article discovery. Includes some coverage of review series (eg, Advances in Space Research) and conference proceedings (eg, IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing).


Extensive coverage of  journal articles, conference proceedings, technical reports and other literature in physics and engineering.   The strength of this database lies in the indexing terms applied to each document, allowing for very focused retrieval.


The major index to the international geological literature from 1785 to the present. Covers geology, geochemistry, geophysics, mineralogy, petrology, economic geology, hydrology, oceanography, geomorphology, and engineering geology.

Arctic & Antarctic Regions

A searchable collection of references to the interdisciplinary research literature of polar and cold temperature environments from 1800 to the present, from anthropology to climate change to zoology.

IEEE Xplore

Full-text access to IEEE transactions, IEEE and IEE journals, magazines, and conference proceedings published since 1988, and all current IEEE standards. This is the technical literature of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

NTIS (National Technical Information Service)

NTIS is the preeminent source for accessing research in engineering, technology, and scientific subjects sponsored by agencies and departments of the United States government and select foreign governments.
