Check out the new study spaces we added over the summer.
SciFinder’s database of regulated chemicals has been updated with more than 42,000 registered substances from the 2013 Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances in China (IECSC). The addition of this national inventory brings the number of regulated substances in SciFinder to more than 300,000.

SciFinder released an update last month that changed their interface and provided some new options and features.
If you have any questions or want to learn more about SciFinder, please contact the Sciences Library at email@example.com or 335-3083.
Online access is now available to Mathematical Research Letters.
Mathematical Research Letters is “dedicated to rapid publication of short complete papers of original research in all areas of mathematics. Expository papers and research announcements of exceptional interest are also occasionally published.”
The journal can accessed through the links in this blog post or by searching the library catalog or the e-journal search page. It is indexed in the MathSciNet and Web of Science citation databases. Use the yellow InfoLink button to access the full-text. Off-campus access is available to students, faculty and staff who use the Libraries’ links and sign in with a HawkID and password.
The UI Libraries is pleased to announce full access to all sections of JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments), including Applied Physics, Behavior, Bioengineering, Chemistry, Clinical and Translational Medicine, Immunology and Infection, and Neuroscience. The Environment section will be available in September 2013.
JoVE is a peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed video journal that seeks to “increase the productivity of scientific research” through the publication of “biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format”.
You can access JoVE and its sections by bookmarking the links in this post. You can also search for specific sections using the library catalog or e-journal search. JoVE sections are also listed in their relevant subject guides.
The UI Libraries have added several major electronic reference works from Wiley to the collection:
- Encyclopedia of Applied Physics
- Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology
- Encyclopedia of Radicals in Chemistry, Biology and Materials
- Encyclopedia of Space Science and Technology
- Handbook of Vibrational Spectroscopy
- International Tables for Crystallography
- Organic Reactions
- Sax’s Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials
- Van Nostrand’s Scientific Encyclopedia
- Handbook of Measurement in Science and Engineering
The new furniture has arrived for the study space on the third floor of the Sciences Library!

“Android and iPhone users can now use their mobile devices as digital topo maps, leveraging USGS maps together with the power of GPS to zoom in on their precise location while hiking, biking, running, or any other activity that benefits from precision navigation. The type of data that are available includes USGS imagery and topographic maps from The National Map, as well as road and contour layers.”
