As a Chemistry student, you are expected to find and use high quality literature. You'll need to use a range of different sources and demonstrate your ability to find good results in order to impress your tutors and to develop your research skills.
To start a more detailed search for research papers, you'll need to use online databases. These are collections of resources that allow you to search from multiple journals at the same time.
Find videos, interactive tutorials, workbooks and links to specific help for developing your digital and information searching skills:
YorSearch is the place to look for books, journals, and other materials held by the Library.
Clicking Find It @ York in a database will check YorSearch to see if we have a copy of what you've found.
We can't afford to buy a copy of everything ever. If we don't have what you need, here are some options:
University of York PhD/MPhil theses and Masters dissertations, plus theses and dissertations from other institutions.
