Open Resource Alternatives to MatLab
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 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.
The BC3 Library has both print and electronic books for mathematics. All of the print books and many of the ebooks are listed in the BC3 Library Catalog where you will find Dewey call numbers to locate print books on the shelves (lower level of the library) and links to connect you to e-books. E-books can also be searched separately in our two e-book collections: e-Book Central by Proquest and e-Book Collection by EBSCO.
