Chemistry books, databases, and a contest

New books | Databases | Knovel Contest

New books

New chemistry books, databases, and other information sources in the Science Library for Chemistry are listed in the Science Library blog. You can subscribe to the blog for updates via email or RSS feed.

e-Books

A reminder that in addition to print titles, the library is purchasing e-books, and has purchased the Springer Chemistry and Materials Science book collection for 2011. New titles are added on a regular basis as they are published. These books can also be found via the normal catalog search.
• Titles in Springerlink with a green box are accessible to the UO

Database News

CrystalMaker

The site license for CrystalMaker has been renewed. If you already have the software installed, you’ll just need the new license numbers to continue access. The license information is in the ‘Course Reserves’ in the Science Library, and can be checked out for 4 hours. You’ll Just ask for the CrystalMaker disks for your operating system, Mac or Windows.

If you haven’t yet installed the software, you can also bring a thumb drive (or check one out from the Science Library) and staff can download the software directly to your thumb drive. It takes about 5 minutes.
» more about CrystalMaker and its components

  • Installation and use of this database is restricted to faculty, staff, and students of the University of Oregon.
  • CrystalMaker will be installed/updated on Science Library computers in the next week.

Cambridge Structural Database

The Libraries recently purchased access to the Cambridge Structural Database(CSD). DVDs and instructions are now available for you to check out from the Science Library so you can install the software on your computer. The software can be checked out for up to 24 hours, for Linux, Mac, or Windows.
» more about CSD and its components

  • Installation and use of this database is restricted to faculty, staff, and students of the University of Oregon.
  • CSD will be installed on Science Library computers in the coming weeks.
