Mathematics & Statistics Research Guide


 

       Welcome to the Mathematics & Statistics Research Guide! 

My name is Ian Gordon and I am the Liaison Librarian for Mathematics and Statistics. Please browse the adjacent tabs that include lists of Library books, e-books, full-text databases and selected Internet web resources.

Search MathSciNet using the MathSciNet EBSCO interface which allows you to search, cite, push to Zotero, search across fields e.g. titles/subjects/abstracts all at once, create alerts, etc. searching the identical content as the AMS version, just easier to use, try it out. 

Most often utilized resources in this guide include MathSciNet, Google Scholar, WorldCat, MathWorld, and the citation management tool Zotero.

New to the Brock Library include Microsoft Academic (an interesting search engine to rival Google Scholar), Knowledge Unlatched (new OER ebooks), and Omni. 

Check out my recent paper on mathematicians information seeking behaviors, how they search for, use and feel about keeping up to date with the scholarly literature. I hope you can hear your voice in this paper?
