Chemistry & Biochemistry

This Research Guide provides all under-graduate & graduate students about searching and finding useful, current and relevant information from Books, Articles and Internet resources about any research project or assignment in Chemistry & Biochemistry.

Getting started on your own research

The purpose of the research guide is to introduce you to the process of literature search and familiarize you with a variety of sources available for you at Queens College Library.

Imagine that your professor asked you to write a paper based on your search of published literature. He/she asked you to consult different information sources including journal/magazine/newspaper articles, books, government documents, as well as Internet resources.

First, select a topic that is of interest to you. If in doubt, talk to your instructor regarding a chosen topic. You might want to seek help from reference librarians who are knowledgeable about search strategies necessary for locating needed information.
