  • JoVE - Journal of Visualized Experiments
    This dynamic new concept of a journal incorporates videos, films, sound, powerpoints, text & images to demonstrate the experimental sciences. Indexed in PubMed & other sources. Covers Bioengineering, Chemistry, Applied Physics, Neurosciences, Immunology & Infection, Clinical & Translational Medicine, Behavior and Environment. Increasingly interdisciplinary.
  • ASTM Standards & Engineering Digital Library
    ASTM is the major database for standards issued by the American Society for testing and materials. Includes full text current and historical standards, and all other publications issued by ASTM: e-books, symposia, journal articles.
  • PolicyMap Trial through November 30, 2013  
      
    PolicyMap is an online (no software installation needed) US national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with varied applications for college students and faculty. It is used in undergraduate & graduate curriculum and in research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among other disciplines. In the academic environment, PolicyMap enables students to concentrate on their subject matter rather than having to spend time learning a GIS tool. PolicyMap is web-based and geared toward users who may not be GIS experts but want to be able to analyze large amounts of data quickly and produce maps, tables, charts and reports with a minimal learning curve for the application itself.
  • Reuters Science News
    Global news summaries about latest science events, policies and findings from news wires and media outlets.
  • SAE Digital Library now active
    Finally, fulltext access to the technical papers from SAE since 1998 are available. For pre-1998 papers. selected technical papers are included in the SAE Transactions, for which some volumes are available at the UCI Library at Science Library Call Number TL 1 S6.
  • ScienceWatch
    Tracks trends and performance in global scientific research since 1989 and includes interview, competitive intelligence, data and rankings, special topics.

    Introduction

    Materials Science at UCI focuses on the development of new materials and new applications for materials in engineering.  Collections include coverage of nanomaterias, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nanodevices, nanocharacterization, packaging materials, materials for advanced energy and fuel cells, biocompatible materials, soft and smart materials, electronic and photonic materials, hybrid materials and multifunctional materials.  The materials may include polymers, ceramics, glass, metals, alloys, synthetics, concrete, etc.  There is a wide range of information products to support the study of materials science and its many applications in product development and other defined areas.  Significant growth in the collections for crystallography and crystal structures is most prominent.

     

    Copying/Printing at the Libraries

    Beginning in Fall, 2008 the UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for copying and xeroxing.  It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found throughout the UCI Libraries.  Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted.  Costs will be debited at the rate of 8 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing.

     

    Evaluating Information

    When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.

    Thinking Critically about World Wide Web Resources - or Evaluation Techniques for Internet Resources

    1. Authority control - authorship - who, affiliation, where
    2. Currency - note the date, the update, does it reflect the right period of time
    3. Evaluate the source - establish criteria that is meaningful to covering the topic
    4. Citing Internet resources - URL & date of the search
    5. Capturing and citing
    6. Copying
