These types of literature provide the most up-to-date information and are much more likely to have information on narrower topics not easily located in books. The Online Catalog does not provide in-depth indexing of all the topics treated in an individual books and cannot be used to find journal articles on a particular subject. These publications are normally published more rapidly than books and should provide the latest information on a given topic. MSU users have access to a number of electronic indexes and databases relevant to chemical engineering and materials science.
E - Journals can be accessed in a number of different ways through our online catalog and our A to Z Title List of Electronic Journals. Many can also accessed from online indexes. Most e- journals can be accessed from anywhere on-campus. Off-campus access to these resources is possible by going through a proxy server. The number of years available online varies by journal title. The electronic resources available at any given time changes as we make more resources available in electronic formats.
