Overview

Online Resources | Major Print Resources | Microform Resources

Swain Library offers broad coverage of chemistry and chemical engineering in a collection of over 40,000 volumes and about 250 current journal subscriptions. Chemistry and Chemical Engineering theses 1950–present are also at Swain (digital versions available 1989–present). To help use materials on-site, there are 16 computers, 1 scanner, 2 photocopiers, 3 black & white printers, 1 color printer, and 1 microfiche/film reader printer. A cash-to-card dispenser for photocopying and printing is also available in Swain.

Online Resources

The library provides access to a number of online databases such as Cambridge Structural Database, Derwent Innovations Index, Engineering Village, Reaxys, SciFinder, and Web of Science. Please note that license agreements for many electronic resources restrict access to current Stanford students, faculty, and staff. Alerting services are available for some databases.

Access to other digital resources includes a growing number of e-books and e-journals plus campus-wide site licenses for software such as ACD’s Spectral/Physical Properties, ChemBioOffice Ultra, and PyMOL. See Subject Guides for information about resources on the web.

Major Print Resources

Major printed reference sources include Chemical Abstracts (1907–2001), Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry, Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry, Houben-Weyl Methoden der Organischen Chemie/Science of Synthesis, and Sadtler Spectra (IR, Proton-NMR, C13-NMR). Specialized indexes include: Bibliographic Notebooks for Organometallic Chemistry, Catalysts and Catalysed Reactions, Mass Spectrometry Bulletin, Methods in Organic Synthesis, and Natural Product Updates.

Microform Resources

Bio-Rad spectra, ACS Supplemental Materials, and several journal titles are available in microform.
