Includes over 200 engineering reference sources, with the latest editions of Marks Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, Perry's Chemical Engineers Handbook, Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers, Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain, and many more.
With 28 journals, 185 eBooks and hundreds of conference proceedings, the ASME Digital Collection houses current content in mechanical engineering and related engineering fields, such as medical device research, energy resources, and nuclear engineering. The collection also includes past research, such as ASME’s Journal Archive, which dates back to 1960. Codes and ASME Standards are not included in our subscription.
Includes all Active and Historical standards from the 80+ volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards. Content is updated as standards are released. The Engineering Digital Library provides access to Standard Technical Papers and Symposia papers, e-books, manuals, 8 journals, and a terminology dictionary.
McMaster's subscription does not include standards from other bodies - e.g., UOP - which may be referenced but are not immediately available online.
BIOSIS Previews is the electronic version of Biological Abstracts and Biological Abstracts/RRM (Reports, Reviews, and Meetings). It indexes about 5,500 life sciences journals of which about 2,300 are indexed cover to cover, and 1,500 conference proceedings, review articles, books and U.S. patents. It covers the biological and biomedical disciplines: agriculture, biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, clinical and experimental medicine, ecology, environmental sciences, microbiology, molecular biology, pharmacology, veterinary science, virology and zoology. It is international in coverage, updated weekly, and available from 1926 through McMaster University libraries.
Contains citations, abstracts and some full-text to more than 5,000 engineering journals, conferences and reports. Subject coverage includes chemical and process engineering, computers and data processing, applied physics, electronics and communications as well as civil and mechanical engineering.
Biomedical and pharmacological database with coverage that encompasses more European and international content than MEDLINE. It contains more than 30 million records including articles from more than 8,500 journals published world-wide. It contains bibliographic records with citations, abstracts and indexing derived from biomedical articles in peer reviewed journals, and is especially strong in its coverage of drug and pharmaceutical research, pharmacology and toxicology.
Provides access to the latest handbooks in civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, published by CRC Press and Routledge. Includes charts, figures, illustrations and data.
Scientific and technical content published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and its publishing partners. Includes journals, conference proceedings, and standards, along with e-books from the SAE and Wiley.
The JoVE Biology Journal presents more than 2000 videos demonstrating techniques and experimental approaches in the fields of cellular, molecular, and organismal biology.
The world's most comprehensive source of life sciences and biomedical bibliographic information, with nearly eleven million records. A free version of MEDLINE is offered through PubMed.
PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that includes over 28 million citations from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.
Contains over 50 million articles from over 23,000 full text journals covering many disciplines.
Provides online access to over 2,000 journals published by Elsevier from their first volumes to current, with strong collections in the social sciences, pure and applied sciences, engineering, and medicine. This service allows you to browse or search the journals and access full text articles (PDF & HTML). McMaster has access to most, but not all journals on this site.
SciFinder by Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) enables users to search online the Chemical Abstracts family of databases. SciFinder is searchable by chemical structure, chemical name, CAS Registry Number, molecular formula, chemical reaction, research topic, author name, specific reference (abstract number or patent number),company name/organization and table of contents of selected journals.
The following databases are available through SciFinder: CA Plus - an enhanced version of Chemical Abstracts, 1907 to present; CAS Registry - a database of chemical structures and names indexed by CAS from 1957 to present; CASREACT - includes records of single and multistep chemical reactions from the Organic and Organometallic sections of Chemical Abstracts from journals (1985 to present) and patents (1991 to present); CHEMCATS - database of commercial suppliers for chemical compounds, 1996-2001 catalogs and chemical libraries; CHEMLIST - regulatory information records from 1979 to present; MEDLINE - medical database with coverage from 1958 to present
Scopus provides broad indexing and citation coverage of academic journals, books and conference proceedings published worldwide. Delivering a comprehensive overview ofresearch output in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
Springer offers full-text access to more than 1,700 journals covering disciplines in science, technology, health, engineering, environment, economics and law, with full coverage from v.1 onwards for most titles. Along with journals, our access includes over 70,000 purchased e-books and conference proceedings published by Springer and related imprints.
The Web of Science Core Collection consists of several separate multi-disciplinary citation indexes (i.e., Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index, Conference Proceedings Citation Index (Science and Social Science & Humanities), Emerging Sources Citation Index) that can be searched independently or in combination. It indexes over 20,000 scholarly journals published worldwide (including open-access titles) and over 160,000 conference proceedings in all subject areas.
The following databases are newly acquired or being evaluated for future subscription.
