BIOSIS, accessed through Web of Science, is a citation index in the life sciences covering molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, endocrinology, genetics, neurosciences, infectious diseases, ecology and organismal biology.
The ACS Publications database strives to be the most authoritative and comprehensive provider of chemistry-related information by providing full-text access to peer-reviewed, scholarly journals published by the ACS.
Applied Science & Technology Abstracts is home to a comprehensive collection of content from a wide range of interdisciplinary fields within the applied sciences. Contains indexing and abstracts for around 800 publications back to 1983, and full text from more than 220 periodicals dating back to 1997.
Web of Science is the world's largest, high-quality interdisciplinary database back to 1965. All subject areas are covered, but the sciences are covered very well. WoS is easy to use, but it has many advanced features that make it an excellent tool for advanced researchers. See the Web of Science page for searching instructions.
You can search all these databases, or select only one.

This Text Revision incorporates information culled from a comprehensive literature review of research about mental disorders published since DSM-IV was completed in 1994. Updated information is included about the associated features, culture, age, and gender features, prevalence, course, and familial pattern of mental disorders.
The American Chemical Society is a self-governed individual membership organization that consists of more than 158,000 members at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry. The organization provides a broad range of opportunities for peer interaction and career development, regardless of professional or scientific interests.
NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) is a cross-database search engine for approximately 24 life science databases. Some of the subjects covered include: gene sequences, molecular structure, proteins, and nucleotides.
The Energy Citations Database contains bibliographic records for energy-related reports, conference papers, journal articles, books, dissertations, and patents from the Department of Energy and its predecessor agencies, the Energy Research and Development Administration and the Atomic Energy Commission.
The United States Department of Commerce National Technical Information Service (NTIS) serves as the largest central resource for government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today. Included are citations for more than 3 million publications in more than 350 subject areas.
Each key concept begins with a concise definition followed by illustrations of how the concept has been applied within the field. Cross-references to related concepts are included along with suggestions for further reading.

national, regional, state, and county levels.
This version of Medline is integrated into the citation linking feature found in the Web of Knowledge database. It is far more sophisticated than the other Medline version offered by the library, and is recommended for advanced researchers.
PubChem provides information on the biological activities of small molecules. PubChem is organized as three linked databases within the NCBI's Entrez information retrieval system. These are PubChem Substance, PubChem Compound, and PubChem BioAssay. PubChem also provides a fast chemical structure similarity search tool.

From the Preface: "A to Zoo can be used to obtain information about children's picture books in two ways: to learn the titles, authors, and illustrators of books on a particular subject, such as 'dragons' or 'weddings'; or to ascertain the subject (or subjects) when only the title, author and title, or illustrator and title are known." Now in its seventh edition, this is a standard reference source for picture books.
