A guide for Chemistry resources for students at Augustana College

Library Databases + Collections

Not all databases are created equal when it comes to chemistry research. Included on this page are two of the primary databases used within the field of Chemistry for research - the journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and SciFinder Scholar. We recommend that you begin with these databases, before moving on to the other science databases available to you. 

Below are listed some additional journal databases that may broadly be of use to you for chemistry research. Some databases may be more appropriate for your topic than others, so pay attention to the databases' descriptions and be sure to search in a variety of resources, both on this page and in the library's other collections.
