This guide is a shorter version of the Physics library guide put together to highlight some of the more useful library research tools.
Useful Starting Points:
- arXiv.org e-Print Archive
arXiv is an e-print service in the fields of physics, mathematics, non-linear science, computer science, quantitative biology and statistics hosted at Cornell University.
- SPIRES-HEP High-Energy Physics Literature Database
A high energy physics e-print server maintained by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University.
- CERN Document Server
Over 900,000 bibliographic records, including 360,000 fulltext documents, of interest to people working in particle physics and related areas. Covers preprints, articles, books, journals, photographs, and more.
- NASA Technical Reports Server
Citations and full-text of unclassified reports. Includes mission-related operational documents and preliminary data
- NTIS (National Technical Information Service)
Index to unclassified reports from many U.S. and international government agencies
- SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System
Funded by NASA and hosted by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, the ADS holds over 7 million bibliographic records, including complete books and scanned articles from select journals.
- Scitation (American Institute of Physics)
Scitation hosts over two million articles in fields that include physics, chemistry geosciences, engineering, acoustics and more.
