In most of our databases, you'll see this button next to each reference. Clicking this button may open up the article automatically, or you will see options to get the article:

- Request from another library
For SciFinder, just use "Find Full Text."
SciFinder Regstration: read the setup instructions, and click SciFinder Registration. SciFinder requires a one-time registration, and you'll need to create a username and password when you login to use it.

The most comprehensive index to the chemical literature. Research Topic search looks for concepts as well exact keywords. First-time users must register. More information on SciFinder, including access and training resources.
1898-present. Indexes articles in physics, geophysics, astronomy, computers, information technology, electronics, biomedical, control, electrical & ocean engineering, acoustics. Good index for conference proceedings & IEEE standards.
Can work for "quick and dirty" searches, but poor for comprehensive searching. Very hard to sort/limit/refine search results. Will need proxy/VPN to get to most articles.
