OneSearchThis link opens in a new windowOneSearch combines most of the library's resources into a single database. Rather than search databases separately, you can do just "one search." OneSearch includes articles, ebooks and books, and more.
Google ScholarThis link opens in a new windowUse this link to show PennWest full text in your Google Scholar results.
MEDLINE CompleteThis link opens in a new windowProvides authoritative medical information on medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, pre-clinical sciences, and much more, dating back to 1857 with full-text back to 1865. MEDLINE Complete is the world's most comprehensive source of full text for medical journals, providing full text for over 1,800 journals.
National Institute of Standards and TechnologyTechnology, measurement, and standards information from the NIST, a non-regulatory agency within the Department of Commerce. You can search their Science Data Portal for a wide range of information.
National Science Digital LibraryNSDL was created by the National Science Foundation to provide educators at all levels of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education with innovative teaching resources and tools.
PDB-101: Educational Portal for Protein Data BankPDB-101 is for teachers, students, and the general public to promote exploration of proteins and nucleic acids. How does it differ from the Protein Data Bank? PDB is the central storehouse of biomolecular structures--but is designed for experts. PDB-101 builds introductory materials designed to help beginners get started. It's the "101," entry level, course. From RCSB.
Periodic TableA one-stop site for data on every element! Start with the periodic table of elements and explore data, values, etc. for each element. Includes direct links to Wikipedia articles on each element.
Protein Data BankThe Protein Data Bank (PDB) serves as a repository of information about the 3D structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies. If you find this advanced site difficult to work with, consider using the PDB-101 site. From RCSB.
PubChem: Explore ChemistryPubChem is an open chemistry database from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It focuses on small molecules, but does include molecules such as nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids, peptides, and chemically-modified macromolecules. You will find information on chemical and physical properties, biological activities, patents, health, toxicity data, and more.
Science.govProvides access to authoritative, selected science information from U.S. Government agencies, including research and development results. (Link goes to the Advanced Search. For the Basic search screen, click on their "Home" link in the menu.)
Wolfram|Alpha: PhysicsWith Wolfram|Alpha, you can explore data about phenomena in the areas of quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, thermodynamics and Newtonian mechanics. Wolfram|Alpha also knows a variety of physical formulas and constants.
INSPIREINSPIRE is a trusted community hub that helps researchers to share and find accurate scholarly information in high energy physics.
Astrophysics Data SystemThe SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a digital library portal for researchers in astronomy and physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant.
CERN Document ServerProvides access to records of interest to people working in particle physics and related areas. It includes preprints, as well as articles, books, proceedings, lectures, photographs, and more - including the full text of many items.
arXivarXiv is a free distribution service and an open-access archive for 2,192,887 scholarly articles in the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, statistics, electrical engineering and systems science, and economics. Materials on this site are not peer-reviewed by arXiv.
American Institute of PhysicsWe are committed to the preservation of physics for future generations, the success of physics students both in the classroom and professionally, and the promotion of a more scientifically literate society.
American Physical SocietyThe American Physical Society (APS) is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics.
