The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) has been curated since 1965 from the published literature, direct deposition, and sources such as patents and PhD theses. It is a database of small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structure data. The CSD also comprises software for database access, structure visualization and data analysis, and structural knowledge bases derived from the CSD.
The CSD database can be installed on computers on the Bloomington campus. Please contact the Sciences Library for details.
In addition to the CSD client version, a web version (WebCSD) is also available. WebCSD offers a limited version of information found in the CSD database. For full access the CSD system must be downloaded.
The Sciences Library also provides access to the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database. This is the inorganic counterpart to the Cambridge Structural Database. Please contact the Sciences Library for access information or a copy of the database to use on computers on the Bloomington campus.
Contains new and classic research techniques covering cell and molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, protein science, and imaging.
Cold Spring Harbor Protocols allows the user to search for peer-reviewed new and classic research techniques in bioinformatics, cell biology, genetics, immunology, molecular biology, neuroscience, plant biology, and a variety of related topics. New protocols are added continuously, and users can be notified of updates by signing up for RSS feeds and alerts. The database offers lists of protocols by subject category as well as a list of newly added protocols and a list of product protocols. Searching the full text of protocols can be accomplished by using the search box found on every page. An advanced search screen is provided for more detailed searches. The advanced search feature will allow the user to search recipes and cautions in addition to protocols. The Cold Spring Harbor Protocols site also offers discussion forums.
JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) provides access to peer reviewed scientific video journals. JoVE has produced over 17,000 videos demonstrating experiments from laboratories at top research institutions.
JoVE began in response to a problem within the world of biomedical science: only 10-30% of published scientific articles can be successfully reproduced. By filming experiments and publishing them in video format JoVE makes visible techniques involved in research for anyone to see and replicate.
Comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world, including millions of works from thousands of universities. Each dissertation published since July, 1980 includes a 350-word abstract written by the author. Master's theses published since 1988 include 150-word abstracts. Simple bibliographic citations are available for dissertations dating from 1637.
Includes the following:
ProQuest Dissertations & Theses: UK & Ireland
ProQuest Dissertations & Theses: A & I
ProQuest Dissertations & Theses: CIC Institutions
Free resource supporting the search and retrieval of biomedical and life sciences literature with the aim of improving health–both globally and personally. Contains more than 30 million citations and abstracts of biomedical literature.
Available to the public online since 1996, PubMed was developed and is maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Resource for experimentally validated data for chemical structures, reactions and chemical substances from CrossFire Beilstein, CrossFire Gmelin and the Patent Chemistry Database.
Reaxys extracts chemical reactions, chemical substances, and measured substance property data (including physical, biochemical and spectroscopic data) from a selected core of chemistry journals (1771-present) and selected chemistry patent publications (1869-present).
Patents cover selected organic chemistry patent publications (1869-1980) and selected English-language patent publications (WO, US, EP; 1976-) from the primary International Patent Class IPC. Additional historical (1869-1980) patent coverage comes from the Beilstein and Gmelin files.
We subscribe to the Springer Protocols portion of Springer Nature Experiments. Database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the biomedical and life sciences, compiling protocols from the book series Methods in Molecular Biology and other sources. Provides access to over thirty years of step-by-step protocols for immediate use in the lab.
Bibliographic citations and abstracts from all areas of toxicology, including chemicals and pharmaceuticals, pesticides, environmental pollutants, and mutagens and teratogens.
TOXLINE provides bibliographic citations and abstracts from journal articles, monographs, technical reports, theses, letters, meeting abstracts, papers and reports. Produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, information in the database is drawn from a number of discrete files including Toxicity Bibliography and Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology. Major areas of coverage include: air pollution, antidotes, biological and adverse effects of drugs; carcinogenesis via chemicals; chemically-induced diseases; environmental chemicals and pollutants; food additives; genotoxicity; hazardous materials; health and safety; human and animal toxicity; industrial and household chemicals; mutagenicity pesticides and herbicides; radioactive materials; and risk information.
The ACS Symposium Series contains peer-reviewed books developed from the ACS technical divisions' symposia. The series covers a broad range of topics, including agricultural and food chemistry, cellulose and renewable materials, chemical education, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, materials, and many others.
Henry Stewart Talks consist of audio-visual presentations ("online seminars by leading world experts") lasting approximately 40-50 minutes . The speakers cover a range of topics in biomedicine and life sciences. These are 10 talks, some in two parts.
