The BC3 Library has several options for finding articles on chemistry topics in addition to the SciFinder database.

You will be able to find some full text articles in Academic Search Premier, PubMed, and Google Scholar, but many of the articles in all of these databases will need to be requested using the BC3 Library's Article Request form. This is a free service for BC3 students and employees.

Google Scholar Search

Google Scholar includes both books and articles. Be careful when selecting that the source is reputable. If an article is not made freely available online, remember that you can use the BC3 Library's Request an Article service to request it and we will do our best to obtain it and email it to you - free of charge.
