You can still access the UC Berkeley Library’s services and resources during the closure. Here’s how.
Search the world's most comprehensive source of references, substances, and reactions in chemistry and related sciences. Note: Restricted to UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff. Requires creation of a personal account from an @berkeley.edu email address.
Indexes over 9,000 journals, patents, conferences, books, technical reports and dissertations related to chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science and the biomedical sciences. Relates to the print equivalent Chemical Abstracts. Note: SciFinder-n is the next generation SciFinder platform. You can choose to use either until the old version is phased out, but SciFinder-n includes an updated search algorithm and enhanced features, including synthesis planning
Find property, reaction, synthesis, and bibliographic information for chemicals.
A web-based interface for three chemical information databases, Beilstein, Gmelin and the Patent Chemistry Database (PCD). Structure, reaction and citation searching are possible. Reaxys is a key resource for locating information on how to synthesis organic, inorganic and organometallic compounds. It is also a good source for critically evaluated data on on physical, chemical, spectral, bioactivity, or toxicological properties of chemical compounds.
Information on chemical properties, structures, and bioactivity.
Includes three interlinked databases: PubChem Compound (standardized and validated chemical structures and properties), PubChem Substance (depositor-uploaded chemical information), and PubChem BioAssay (descriptions of bioactivity screens for chemicals in PubChem Substance).
The University Library is taking some time to pause DAAP and evaluate its effectiveness. Further information about DAAP will be available in Fall 2020. In the meantime, please contact your subject librarian to discuss any data needs.
The Data Acquisition and Access Program (DAAP) enables UC Berkeley faculty, students and staff to request data that require purchase, licensing or are otherwise restricted. Made possible through a partnership between the University Libraries and the D-Lab, this program is focused on datasets that require license or user agreements to access.
The program has an open call for faculty, students and staff to submit requests for data. More information on the criteria and eligibility for inclusion in this program can be found on the DAAP Guide.
