Getting Started At The Library

How do I find books or journals on a specific topic?

The Library Catalog lists all the items that the library owns or to which it has a subscription. You can search the catalog for a specific book title or author. You can also search for items related to a specific topic or subject. Journal subscriptions are also listed in the catalog, but you will need to use a database to find individual articles in those journals.

If you are specifically looking for a Masters thesis or a Doctoral dissertation, visit the Dissertations page.

How do I find a specific journal article for which I have a citation?

Visit the About Article Citations page for information on deciphering various citation styles and locating articles using the Catalog.

How do I find journal articles on a specific topic?

Use a journal article database.  It's a good idea to try searching more than one database. If you are trying to decide which database is appropriate for your research, look at the suggested databases on the Chem Eng Databases page.

How can I make a copy of pages in a print book or journal?

Marston Science Library has multifunction machines located on the second (main) and first floors. These machines can print, copy, or scan. Copies cost $0.10 (b/w) and $0.50 (color) per page through your Gator 1 card, to which you must add value for vending services at Scanners are also available on the second (main) and first floors to make a PDF of the article which you can then save on a USB drive, burn to a CD, or email to yourself.

What if the library doesn't have the book or journal subscription that I need?

Use the free Interlibrary Loan Service.

Do we have access to XYZ Standard?

There is information about Standards on the Chem Eng Databases page. The only standards we have are ASTM Standards in print, in the Reference Section of Marston. In general, we do NOT have ISO or other standards. If you are in need of a specific non-ASTM standard, please contact me.

Are there any tools to help me manage my references and format my papers?

Yes! The Citation Management page has information on programs that are available to you, free of charge, that will be very helpful.

Where can I find more information?

  • Your subject librarian's contact information is to the right. Feel free to contact her with any questions you may have.
  • Visit the Marston Science Library Reference Desk (hours), or call (352) 273-2872.
