Polymer Information and Resources
Welcome to Polymer Science
A database is a collection of information on a website organized so you can conduct a search (by keyword, title, author, etc). The UML Library provides access to a multitude of databases for students. These databases draw from sources that include journal articles, books, conference papers, maps, government reports, etc.
Databases are the core of scholarship and indispensible to research. In particular you can find peer-reviewed articles from academic journals (for example, Public Health). To clarify, a database can be used to search for journals, which contain peer-reviewed articles, vital to references when writing a thesis or doing research.
Some databases provide full-text and some don't. If the database you're searching doesn't include full-text, use Interlibrary Loan. You will find instructions here.
Also use Interlibrary Loan if the UML Libraries doesn't own the item you need.
