HOW DO I...?

INTERLIBRARY LOAN (ILL), Graduate Student Document Delivery coming soon

Books come in about 2 weeks; longer if there are few holding libraries

Articles in less than a week via e-mail (PDF)

Usually free service; they will ask for your OK if there is a charge
CATALOG

Can limit to journals, new books, search USMAI (all 17 campuses), select a campus

Word/s anywhere: “biochemical engineer*”(1/1 means we have a copy and it is checked out)

REQUEST BUTTON: Request from other campus or recall from another UMD borrower
WorldcatUM:

Same as Catalog but expanded with new databases including Medline, ERIC, etc.

lists UMD items first, next USMAI, then other libraries.

Includes article citations from several large databases.
RESEARCH PORT.UMD.EDU ejournals and databases (We spend about $5.2 million for these)

Off campus: use Google Scholar via Researchport to get links to our subscribed full text
E-JOURNALS: search: "Chemical Engineering Communications"; follow the link 1997 to present
(Informaworld Taylor & Francis Journals Complete)

Research port is “official word” on what years we have

“Report a problem with Researchport” at bottom left of Journals or Databases main page.
DATABASE BY NAME:

Academic Search Premier: Can limit to Scholarly Journal, Full text, Document types...
 “process engineer*”/TITLE - 69 hits ; select a field TX-ALL TEXT – 7,750 hits
 “FIND IT” links to full text in OTHER database, also to our print journals or Interlibrary loan

Google Scholar
 Off campus: find “by database name” in Researchport to link to journals we subscribe to
 “polymer melt processing” get 670 hits in Google Scholar; “Find it @UMCP” usually gets
PDF
DATABASES BY SUBJECT CATEGORY:
Engineering and Technology, Chemical Engineering

EI Village (Compendex): 425 hits for the search: molecular genetic*/TITLE
st
~ Change SORT BY to PUBLICATION YEAR (1 result: “Application of different molecular
techniques for deciphering genetic diversity …” by Kanwar, S.S.
~ Two types of FIND IT buttons:
 Yellow one links to Full text or show how to get ILL
 Blue one (that one may not work, even if we subscribe). So use always the yellow one.
Engineering and Technology, ALL DATABASES

Engineered Materials: Once in there, click SPECIFIC DATABASES to add Materials Business
File, METADEX, and MEDLINE to the search
~ “granular material*”/Anywhere - #3 in MEDLINE to get FT via the FIND IT button.


INSPEC no longer available and Scitopia.org is a possible partial substitute along with
GoogleScholar, INSPEC ARCHIVE (1898-1968), ScienceDirect, and IEEE Xplore. Finally, there
are Biotechnology & Bioengineering Abstracts, Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical
Technology, and PubMed.

SciFinder Scholar which has Chemical Abstracts back to 1907.
~ First create an account using your @umd.edu email address to use the web version.
~ “silica nanoparticles”

Scopus
~ biomaterial* AND therapeutic*/TITLE

Knovel – Content collection includes material properties, process and design information, best
practices, equations and formulations for specific industries and engineering disciplines. Among
the titles included are some heavily used print sources like The Merck Index, Bergey’s Manual,
vol. 2, Perry’s handbook, Lange’s Handbook of Chemistry, Name Reactions book, etc.

Web of Science, especially Science Citation Index – excellent in the life sciences, chemistry, etc.
but not as good in engineering related fields.
 CITED REF SEARCH: CITED AUTHOR for Dr. Sheryl Ehrman -- Ehrman, S* - 57 cited
reference variants
 “Select All” and “Finish Search” to get 447 articles that cite any of these 57.
 EndNote Web (citation manager):
o Create account from Web of Science database when off-campus; can then access it
from anywhere at www.endnote.com
o Download installer Cite While You Write™
TECHNICAL REPORTS (many full text): http://ntrs.nasa.gov/search.jsp , www.osti.gov , www.dtic.mil
PATENTS
 http://patft.uspto.gov/ and http://appft.uspto.gov/ (needs tiff viewer: www.alternatiff.com)
 Applications file and the class/subclass system
 ttl/(“tissue engineering”) 177 applications; 20100215719 is in class 424/423
 ccl/424/423 in patft.uspto.gov 1790-present: 2032 patents (no word search before 1976)
 http://ep.espacenet.com/ 60+ million world wide patents; PDF images
 http://www.google.com/patent VERY fast search, easy print/save; but uspclass: search NOT
reliable
