      Ingenta Contains citations to research articles from over 13,500 scholarly & popular journals. Coverage includes the humanities, social sciences & science.

      Containing over 15 million records, Inspec is one of the most definitive abstract and indexing databases for subject specific and interdisciplinary research in the fields of engineering, physics and computer science. The Inspec database covers five main topics: physics; electrical engineering and electronics; computers and control; information technology for business; and mechanical and production engineering.


      Searchable web database providing access to over 58 years of Mathematical Reviews and Current Mathematical Publications.

      NOTE: As of Sept 2015, the entire MathSciNet database is also included within OneSearch. You can do a normal OneSearch search, then use the Databases Included at the bottom left to restrict results to MathSciNet.

      Search tips:

      OneSearch (EBSCO EDS - Proxied)

      OneSearch (EBSCO Discovery Service) searches most of Robertson Library's licensed content in a single search.



      ScienceDirect Provides full text to peer-reviewed journals from Elsevier Science, including a large number of journals in the life sciences.

      Scopus provides broad indexing and citation coverage of academic journals, books and conference proceedings published worldwide. Delivering a comprehensive overview ofresearch output in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Access the Elsevier Scopus guide for information about searching. 

      Springer LINK Contains over 1,900 full text electronic journals from the areas of science, technology, medicine, engineering, environment, economics, and law.
      Web of Science (Backfile)

      Backfile thru December 2009 for Web of Science (WOS) Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) & Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI)


      Why just the backfile? See the Web of Science Subscription 2010.

      Wiley Online

      Wiley Online is a multidisciplinary collection of online resources covering life, health and physical sciences, social science, and the humanities. The Library subscribes to a large subset of the journals published by Wiley, but not all of them. As of Winter 2019, the Library also provides access to over 20,000 Wiley ebooks, which is most but not all of them. The Library is unable to provide access to Wiley Textbooks.
