What's in the Guide


Welcome to the Physics Research Guide! 

My name is Ian Gordon and I am the Liaison Librarian for Physics. Please browse the attached lists of Library databases, books, e-books, full-text databases, and selected Internet web resources.

Most often used resources in this guide include Eric Weisstein's World of PhysicsGoogle ScholarReaxys, Web of Science,, APS PROLA database, and Brock Physics M.Sc. theses.

New to the Brock Library include Microsoft Academic (an interesting search engine to rival Google Scholar), Knowledge Unlatched (new OER ebooks), CAB Abstracts with Fulltext (international science, conservation and policy), Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), and IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and Kanopy (streaming video, time well-wasted!).
