Fall semester is always a time of fresh beginnings — new classes, new faces, and most excitingly for those of us at the library, access to new resources. We hope that the following new databases, books, journals, and much more will be of value to those studying literature. Here are some highlights for undergraduates, graduate students, and professors alike.
Landolt-Bornstein, the indispensable reference source for physical and chemical data, is now accessible online through SpringerMaterials.
Updated on a quarterly basis, SpringerMaterials includes:
- 400 Landolt-Börnstein volumes, 250,000 substances and 1,200,000 citations
- 44,000 Chemical Safety Documents
- The world’s largest and most renowned Database on Thermophysical Properties, the subset of the DDBST (Dortmund Data Bank Software & Separation Technology)
- Linus Pauling Files, the most comprehensive database on inorganic solid phases
Access is restricted to UCB faculty, staff, and students.
