What's in the Guide



Welcome to the Chemistry Research Guide!

Welcome! My name is Ian Gordon and I am the Liaison Librarian for Chemistry. Please browse the attached lists of often used and most popular Library databases, books, e-books, full-text databases and selected Internet web resources.

ChemDraw software is available to the Brock Community to assist with creating structures and reactions. Cambridge Crystallography Database (WebCSD) is licensed by the Brock Library, but administered by Razvan Simionescu in the Chemistry Department.

The Library provides access to a new resources titled The ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication. This guide provides constantly updated content on scientific communication, journals, data in the new Google era, scientific and editorial style conventions. This resource replaces The ACS Style Guide (2006) which is no longer updated.

New databases to the Brock Library include Google ScholarMicrosoft AcademicDimensionsCOREBASEPaperitySciELOSemantic Scholar, & Zenodo.

If you don't have an ORCiD ID, then register for one as a student, faculty or staff person.
